A class action lawsuit will be filed Sunday against University Hospitals in response to the more than 2,000 eggs and embryos that were potentially damaged or destroyed at the hospital’s fertility clinic.
The lawsuit will be filed by Amber and Elliot Ash, a husband and wife who had an embryo stored at the facility.
University Hospitals issued the following statement Sunday:
“We understand why some people might feel compelled to take this step. Any lawsuits being filed will have no bearing on the independent review being conducted or our determination to help patients who have suffered this loss.”
The Ash’s are represented by DiCello Levitt & Casey, a law firm that has been involved in numerous recent high-profile class action lawsuits – ranging from Volkswagen to Equifax.
“Our clients are absolutely devastated, as I’m sure countless families across Ohio are, in the wake of this catastrophic failure by University Hospitals,” said Mark DiCello of DiCello Levitt & Casey, attorney for the plaintiffs, in a prepared statement. “Let’s not forget those affected are grieving the loss of thousands of potential daughters and sons. They are in a state of confusion, anger and sorrow, with too many unanswered questions. With this lawsuit, we will get answers and stop this from happening again.”
