  2. if what I read is correct then wouldn't the answer be yes he can sue since he is neither colorblind and even if the mother was color blind carrier it woudnt matter cause it has to be the father to pass it down also in his gene?

  3. This is from the website I posted for you.

    "If a woman has only one colour blind ‘gene’ she is known as a ‘carrier’ but she won’t be colour blind. When she has a child she will give one of her X chromosomes to the child. If she gives the X chromosome with the faulty ‘gene’ to her son he will be colour blind, but if he receives the ‘good’ chromosome he won’t be colour blind.

    A colour blind boy can’t receive a colour blind ‘gene’ from his father, even if his father is colour blind, because his father can only pass an X chromosome to his daughters.

    A colour blind daughter therefore must have a father who is colour blind and a mother who is a carrier (who has also passed the faulty ‘gene’ to her daughter). If her father is not colour blind, a ‘carrier’ daughter won’t be colour blind. A daughter can become a carrier in one of two ways – she can acquire the ‘gene’ from a carrier mother or from a colour blind father."
