Judge dismisses paternity suit against Michael Jordan

Posted: Updated:

A Fulton County judge has dismissed a lawsuit by a woman claiming basketball great Michael Jordan is the father of her child.

A clerk for the judge tells FOX 5 the suit filed by 49-year-old Pamela Smith was dismissed without prejudice. TMZ reports that Smith asked for the dismissal.

Smith said previously that her son wanted to know who his biological father is.

"My son has rights to know who his father is, and that is a major issue," Smith said. "I have to support my son, and he has had an issue with this over the years, because he doesn't have a relationship with the person that he thought was his father. So he needs to know for sure who his father is," Smith said.

TMZ reports it's not clear why Smith wanted the case dismissed.
