A separated lesbian couple has been ordered to testify on behalf of a Topeka sperm donor being sued by the state for child support.

Shawnee County District Court records show the court clerk's office issued subpoenas Wednesday for Angela Bauer and Jennifer L. Schreiner. The women have been ordered to appear Feb. 15 to give depositions to an attorney for William Marotta.

Marotta says he signed a contract waiving his parental rights and responsibilities when he answered a sperm donor ad from the two women on Craigslist. But because no doctor was involved in the artificial insemination, the state sought to hold him financially responsible when the women split up and sought public assistance. An April evidentiary hearing is planned.
