• Lawyer: Paternity suit against Jordan withdrawn

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Mar 18, 2013
    A lawyer for a woman who says Michael Jordan fathered her teenage son has withdrawn her paternity suit, but left open the possibility that it could be refiled. Smith filed the suit herself last month against Jordan and asked that the basketball hall of famer take a paternity test and pay child support. Kessler said the lawsuit was withdrawn Friday without prejudice, meaning it can be refiled. A lawyer for the majority owner of the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats has said Smith's divorce filings established her ex-husband as the father. Jordan has denied that he's the father of Smith's 16-year-old son. Ms. Smith has relied on our advice and determined that dismissal at this time, without prejudice, is in her son's best interests."
