Woman Can’t Sue Nets’ CEO After Abortion, Court Rules

A New Jersey appeals court has ruled that a woman who dated Nets CEO Brett Yormark can’t sue him after she had an abortion.

Reyna Purcell claims Yormark promised to stay in their relationship and take her on vacation if she ended her pregnancy.

Purcell claims she wanted to keep the baby. She had an abortion in February 2011. Yormark ended the relationship shortly after.

Purcell sued Yormark last year. A judge dismissed the case, saying the promise was not in writing and attorneys were not present.

Purcell appealed. The appeals court on Friday upheld the lower court’s ruling, saying there is no legal recourse for ending a pregnancy and regretting the decision.

Purcell’s and Yormark’s names were in the original legal filings but not the appeals court ruling.
