Ashley Kozel filed a notice with New York Fertility Institute claiming she would seize funds paid to the clinic by her ex husband and his new wife
Ms. Kozel and her husband Todd divorced in 2012 and she received a nine-figure divorce settlement
As part of the settlement she also received 23million shares of Gulf Keystone stock, where her husband was the CEO at the time
Last September a judge awarded her an additional $38million in damages after Mr. Kozel missed a deadline for the transfer of stock to his ex-wife
A month later Ms. Kozel filed her notice with NYFI, where Mr. Kozel’s new wife Inga, 30, is receiving fertility treatments
The Supreme Court of New York issued a protective order Monday stating Ms. Kozel can no longer ‘serve enforcement procedures on NYFI’

The contentious divorce between an oil baron and his socialite ex-wife continues to rage on not only in court, but also inside a New York City fertility clinic.
Ashley Kozel, the former wife of Gulf Keystone CEO Todd Kozel, received a nine-figure divorce settlement in the couple’s 2012 divorce settlement which included 23million shares of Keystone stock, a portion of which was delivered after the first deadline set by the court.
A subsequent judgment resulted in a Florida judge awarding Ms. Kozel $38million in damages last September in a ruling that Mr. Kozel, 48, is in the process of appealing.
Since that time, Ms. Kozel, 47, has gone to great lengths to try and secure that money, and in October of last year a notice was sent by her divorce lawyer, Jeffrey Fisher of Fisher & Bendeck, informing New York Fertility Institute of the ruling and letting them know that if they accepted money from Mr. Kozel ‘all rights and remedies’ will be pursued against the company to get those funds.
The notice came after Ms. Kozel reviewed her husband’s credit card statements and saw multiple charges to the facility, which was being visited by 30-year-old Inga Kozel, Mr. Kozel’s new Lithuanian wife.
Todd Kozel used their marital assets to buy the four-bedroom pad in December 2013 for his new wife, Inga, a blond bombshell from Lithuania, the court docs allege.
‘We have reviewed Mr. Kozel’s credit card statements which show that many large charges were made to the New York Fertility institute.’Enclosed in as Asset Injunction and Order entered by the Circuit Court of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit of Sarasota, Florida on September 11, 2015.’
The injunction also informed New York Fertility Center that deposits or funds belonging to Mr. Kozel and his new wife ‘must remain frozen and cannot be used for any purpose pending resolution of these claims.’
A source close to Mr. Kozel and Inga said of the injunction; ‘What sort of woman seeks to prevent another woman she’s never met from having a child?’
Mr. Kozel and his new wife got some good news Monday however when the Supreme Court of New York issued a protective order stating that Ms. Kozel and her lawyer can no longer ‘serve enforcement procedures on New York Fertility institute or any other health car provider to defendant [Mr. Kozel] or Inga Kozel.’
