NEW YORK —

A New Yorker who believes his birth mother "sold" him as a baby in 1945 is suing the city to get a birth certificate with the name he's always known.

The New York City Law Department tells the New York Post (http://bit.ly/YalcBL ) it's reviewing the case of Albert Higgins of Livingston Manor.

He discovered while trying to renew a driver's license that there was no birth certificate under his name.

The 67-year-old says that in 1995, his dying mother revealed she bought him from a Bronx neighbor. He says an old handwritten note contained his birth parents' names.

Higgins says a birth certificate exists under the name Garry Swingle. His goal is to be legally recognized under that name, then get a birth certificate with the name he's always used.
