Efforts to reach the now-retired Mortimer for comment were unsuccessful, and the Mortimers have not listed a defense attorney with the Clerk of Courts. Michael Wheiler, a lawyer representing Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls, said the health care professionals who now provide services there were not involved in the practice at the time the allegations against Mortimer were said to have occurred. Ashby and Fowler met Mortimer in , when they were a married couple residing in Idaho Falls, according to the lawsuit.
The couple agreed to the procedure, according to the lawsuit, but only if the donor could be a college student who looked like Fowler, with brown hair and blue eyes, and who was taller than 6 feet. Mortimer remained Ashby's ob-gyn for several years, and "two years after Kelli Rowlette's birth, Ms.
