After completing his duty at a Pasadena fertility clinic, frequent
sperm donor visitor Ken Rigberg noticed an “unusual hole” in the ceiling.
Upon inspection, Rigberg realized that “there was a hidden surveillance camera on top of the ceiling tile, with the lens of the camera positioned to…capture the activity within the private donor room.”
The Smoking Gun has a copy of Rigberg’s complaint against Pacific Reproductive Services, in which he seeks unspecified damages for “negligence and emotional distress”. Rigberg has since stopped visiting the clinic, where donors could receive $100 per donation two times a week, for fear of further voyeurism.
On a side note, Pacific Reproductive Services’ bills itself on their website as having “the Most Willing-To-Be-Known Donors.”
