Several families have filed a lawsuit in Canada against Xytex.

They say the company described Donor 9623 as a healthy man with an IQ of 160. He had a Bachelor’s of Science in Neuroscience, a Master’s in Artificial Intelligence and was pursuing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience Engineering.

The families say his name was accidentally included on an email. When they looked Chris Aggeles up, they learned he had been arrested for burglary, has  schizophrenia and suffers from multiple personality disorders.

A similar lawsuit was attempted in Georgia. A judge dismissed the case because the state does not recognize wrongful-birth claims.

His sperm was used to father at least 36 children in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K.
