The documents say Dr. Mortimer recommended that the couple undergo a procedure where a donor's sperm would be mixed with Mr. Fowler's genetic material in the medical lab prior to insemination to increase the chances of conception, where 85 percent of the mixture would be Mr. Fowler's genetic material, and 15 percent would be that of a donor's (selected by Ms. Ashby and Mr. Fowler).
According to the lawsuit, Ashby and Fowler agreed to do the operation but only if the donor had physical characteristics similar to Fowler - brown hair, blue eyes and over 6 feet tall.
In the lawsuit, Ms Rowlette claims that the doctor was aware of using his own sperm as a donor, but her mother was never informed.
After Rowlette found out Mortimer was her biological dad - thinking the results were flawed - she broke the news to her now divorced parents.
IUI - intrauterine insemination or artificial insemination - is a fertility treatment that involves directly inserting sperm into a woman's womb.
Gunman kills four staff in Turkish university
A gunman has shot and killed four teaching staff at the university in Eskisehir in north-western Turkey, the BBC reports. The attacker, identified as Volkan Bayar, was apprehended by police as he left the scene, Gonen said.
The lawsuit claims that had the parents known Mortimer was going to use his own semen, they would not have consented to the procedure.
A DNA test revealed a woman might be the biological daughter of the doctor who delivered her.
The truth remained hidden until July 2017, when Rowlette received a notification from Ancestry.com that a DNA sample she had submitted matched with Dr. Mortimer's DNA sample, and predicted their parent-child relationship.
It is also alleged that he cried when the family announced their plans to move to Washington, some 3000 miles away.
Kelli Rowlette filed a lawsuit last week against Dr. Gerald Mortimer, his wife Linda McKinnon Mortimer, and the Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Idaho Falls.

Dani Carvajal lifted a cross to the Portuguese, who soared in the air and sent a flying acrobatic kick past Gianluigi Buffon , who had no chance.
The final twist to the story was when Rowlette checked out her birth certificate and noticed that it was signed by Dr. Gerald E. Mortimer, the same name that appeared on her Ancestry.com DNA results.
Rowlette's mother and father reportedly "had difficulty contemplating the torment the discovery would cause their daughter when she found out", the court document stated. Although the family understands the public's interest in the case, it calls for respect for its privacy as it attempts to recover from this trauma.
Ms Rowlette was born in 1981, and later, the couple had a son without any additional medical assistance. The family believes he knew he was Rowlette's biological father. He falsely represented that he had used donor genetic material and Mr. Fowler's genetic material and intentionally hid this fact from the couple.
As a result, "people may learn of unexpected connections" unless they choose to make their DNA match settings private. It must be a mistake, she tells her mom - who takes a look at the name on her own time and is completely "devastated", the lawsuit says.
"With Ancestry, customers maintain ownership and control over their DNA data", the statement continued.
