HOUSTON – A Harris County man alleges Houston Fertility Services, PLLC and Southwest Andrology Services, LLC refused to provide him information in connection with the purported destruction of his sperm donation.
In a lawsuit filed on Apr. 6 in the Harris County 334th District Court, Sharon Amos explains he contributed the specimens in question to the defendants in 2014 after he was diagnosed with cancer. Amos and his wife intended to start a family following his treatment regimen, the suit states.
The treatments reportedly caused the plaintiff to permanently lose his ability to have children of his own.
According to Amos, he received information in early 2016 that the frozen sperm he donated to the respondents was allowed to thaw. The specimens were damaged to the point they were rendered unusable for future futility treatments that would possibly allow the complainant and his wife to have children, the suit says.
Amos says he requested an explanation from the defendants to no avail, accusing them of executing a cover-up.
Consequently, he seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
Danny M. Sheena, Jason P. Scofield, and Blake A. Aston of The Sheena Law Firm in Houston are representing the plaintiff.
