Norman Barwin screwed up before

Remember the case of Norman Barwin, the IVF doc who is accused of mixing up donor sperm and cheating at marathons?

It turns out he's had at least one other lawsuit laid against him:

But the Moore and Slinn cases are not the first suggesting a mix-up at the Ottawa clinic. In 1994, Loree-Ann Huard and Wanda Cowton went to Dr. Barwin for artificial insemination. The following year, the lesbian couple sued Dr. Barwin for inseminating Ms. Huard with the wrong donor sperm. In 1998, they settled out of court for an undisclosed sum. As part of the settlement, Ms. Huard and Ms. Cowton are forbidden to talk to the media about their case.
