Japanese woman files US$2.9 million lawsuit against sperm donor who lied about identity

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Japanese woman files US$2.9 million lawsuit against sperm donor who lied about identity” – below is their description.

A Japanese woman gave her newborn up for adoption after discovering that the child’s biological father, a sperm donor, lied about his identity. The 30-year-old woman slept with the man up to 10 times after he claimed to be a Japanese graduate of an elite national university. In reality, he was a Chinese national who graduated from a less prestigious university. He was also married. She is now suing him in a Tokyo court for 330 million yen (US$2.9 million) for causing emotional distress. Her lawyer says the lawsuit is meant to deter the defendant from defrauding other women in future.
