    Default Doornbos v. Doornbos

    "A 1954 case in Illinois, Doornbos v. Doornbos, concluded that a 'test tube baby' conceived through AID, even if the procedure was undertaken with the husband's consent, was legally a bastard."

    Is "Doornbos" a person's name?
    What does "v." stand for in "Doornbos v. Doornbos"?

    v = versus - "against"
    It sounds like Mr and Mrs Doornbos took a disagrement to court.

    I agree it's a legal dispute between a couple.
    BTW, while 'v' does stand for 'versus', if you want to say the name of a law case, say 'Doornbos and Doornbos'.
