Breach of contract in Germany

While waiting for the Blues game to start, here is a legal case for you to judge.

A man sues neighbor for breach of contract in Germany: Paid to do it but fails to make friend's wife pregnant after 72 attempts.

In Stuttgard, Germany a court judge must decide on a case of honorable intentions in a sitution where a man hired his neighbor to get his wife pregnant.

It seems that Demetrius Soupolos, 29, and his former beauty queen wife, Traute wanted to have a child badly, but Demetrius was was told by his doctor that he was sterile.

So Soupolos, after calming his wife's protest agreed to pay his neighbor Frank Maus, 34, to impregnant his wife. Since Maus was already married and had two childern, plus looked very much like Soupolos to boot, the plan seemed good.

So Soupolos paid Maus 2500 Euros for the job and for 3 evenings a week for the next 6 months, Maus tried desperately, a total of 72 times to impregnant Traute.

When Maus's wife objected he told his wife, "I don't like this any more than you, I am simply doing it for the money".

When Traute failed to get pregnant after the six months, Soupolos was not understanding and insisted Maus to have a medical examination, which he did.

The doctor's announcement that Maus was also sterile shocked everyone except his wife, who then had to confess that Maus was not the real father of the two childern.

Now Suppolos is sueing Maus for breach of contract, in an effort to get his money back, but Maus refuses to give it back saying he did not guarantee results, only that he would give it his best effort. I guess there is no factory quarantee in this...
