A dozen suits have been filed in four U.S. states and Canada against a Georgia sperm bank over a single donor who was allegedly described as a brilliant neuroscientist and musician, but who was actually a diagnosed schizophrenic who had served time for burglary and had no college degree.

All the Jane Doe suits, filed in courts in Georgia, Florida, Ohio, California and Canada, say Xytex misled them about the qualifications and accomplishments of donor James Aggeles who, according to court filings, is the biological father of the children of at least 36 women. The complaints say that, had the would-be parents known of Aggeles’ background, they never would have accepted him as a donor. They argue that they have and will continue to spend time and money monitoring their children for signs of schizophrenia and, if the disorder occurs, will have to pay for care and treatment.
