Man wants ex-wife to pay for kidney

A man is asking his ex-wife to pay 1.2 million dollars for the kidney he gave her while they were married.

A New York doctor is demanding that his estranged wife pay him $1.5 million to compensate him for the kidney he gave her while they were still on good terms. Dr. Richard Batista spoke Wednesday to reporters at his lawyer's office in Garden City, Long Island.

He said he gave his kidney to Dawnell Batista in June 2001. She filed for divorce in July 2005.

Now that's just nasty. He gave her the kidney. Asking for payment for it now (which would have been illegal before the operation) is absurd.

It can't be legal even now can it? I don't know anything about this case but he sounds like the lowest of the low.
