Shatner horse semen suit dismissed

VERSAILLES, Ky., July 13 (UPI) -- A lawsuit filed against actor William Shatner over frozen horse semen has been dismissed.

Shatner's second wife, Marcy Lafferty Shatner, filed the suit in April claiming he had breached provisions in their 1995 divorce settlement, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.


The settlement gives Shatner the couple's stallion, Great Day's Came the Son, but gives his former wife one breeding privilege per calendar year.

The suit complained over the way the semen was delivered to Marcy Shatner, saying it was frozen instead of the "fresh cooled format," the newspaper said.

Shatner's attorney successfully argued for dismissal of the case, saying the divorce settlement did not contain any restriction on how the semen was to be delivered.

In addition, he said, the actor was never personally served with the suit, which is required by law, and the divorce settlement says any disputes would be resolved in L.A.
