Sydney widow granted possession of deceased husband’s sperm

Jerome Doraisamy writes for Lawyers Weekly:
The NSW Supreme Court has ruled in favour of a woman seeking possession of a sperm sample previously removed pursuant to an order of the court from the body of her late husband.
The decision follows a recent landmark ruling by the Supreme Court of Queensland, which held that a woman was entitled to possession of sperm extracted from her recently-deceased partner who had committed suicide.
That particular decision was criticised by numerous Australian family law practitioners.
