Sofia Vergara wins in court

Sofia Vergara has had success in her frozen embryo fight with her ex-fiancé, Nick Loeb, as a judge has discharged the case in the state of Louisiana.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the judge ruling over the case specified that the court had no authority over the verdict because the embryos were conceived in California, and neither the Modern Family star nor Loeb has any everlasting ties to Louisiana.

Although Loeb claimed he and Vergara, 45, planned to spend their life together in the state, the judge noted that the entrepreneur most likely filed in Louisiana because of its promising laws regarding the rights of unborn children.

The judge also referred to the embryos as “citizens of California” before commenting that weighing in on the case would require a potential legal valuation over the embryos’ rights.

The actress and the Onion Crunch creator formed two female embryos through IVF when they were still together and have battled over their fate since splitting in May 2014.

The former couple had initially agreed to keep the embryos in storage until both parties signed papers stating otherwise. However, Loeb sued Vergara in April 2015 in California, where the judge in that case ruled Loeb would have to disclose two exes who had abortions in order for that case to continue.

The Hot Pursuit actress’ legal war with her ex has powered debates as to whether men should have the same rights as women over frozen embryos.

Loeb spoke up in April 2015 about his desire to be a parent, saying, “I created these two female embryos with the purpose of taking them to term and not destruction, because I have always dreamed of being a father. I have previously offered to waive any parental or financial responsibilities on the part of my ex. … When a man does want to become a father, and wants to impose no obligations on the other party, he should have that corresponding right.”
