Man can't sue former girlfriend for getting pregnant
Ontario's highest court has ruled a Toronto man has no grounds to sue a woman who became pregnant after lying about being on the pill.
The budding physician was seeking four-million dollars for fraudulent misrepresentation, arguing he suffered emotional harm from his unplanned parenthood.
He appealed when a lower court quashed the suit, but lost again when the Ontario Court of Appeal found there was no basis to open up the mother to the man's highly unusual claim for damages.
The names of the man and woman can't be released to protect the identity of the child.
