TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) A Topeka man who provided sperm to a lesbian couple has asked the Kansas Supreme court to direct a district court judge to block his genetic testing.

The order was filed Friday on behalf of William Marotta and also would instruct Shawnee County District court Judge Mary Mattivi to conduct a hearing to determine if genetic testing would be in the best interests of the 4-year-old girl born as a result of the sperm Marotta provided to the couple.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Kansas Department for Children and Families filed the case to have Marotta declared the child's father so he can be held responsible for public assistance and future child support.

Marotta opposed that action, saying he signed a contract waiving his parental rights and responsibilities.
