Well, this case got ugly really fast. A judge just slapped sex instructor, Pamela Smith, with a $10,000 fine for "lying" regarding the paternity of her son, Taj, via claiming in court papers his dad is basketball legend Michael Jordan. Smith sued Jordan for paternity. However, years ago paternity was established with Smith's ex-husband named as the father on the young man's birth certificate. Smith withdrew the lawsuit, then the judge dismissed it without prejudice, meaning it can be filed again.
Pamela Smith failed to compel the court to order Jordan to take a paternity test, as she hired a publicist, before a lawyer, which didn't look right.
Taj changed his last name to Jordan
It is not currently known if Smith was paid by any publications for her story, as a number of bloggers reported turning her down when she sought to drum up press for it. Therefore, if she wasn't paid a tell-all fee and now has to pay $10,000 in legal fees to Jordan, she is up a creek.

I don't understand why any woman would point the finger at the wrong man regarding paternity. Though I do not live that way, in my estimation, it would be embarrassing enough to publicly admit one does not even know who the father of one's child is, due to the number of people in one's bed, but to guess and guess wrong...oh dear. That's embarrassing.

Most women don't want to be publicly disgraced like that - sexing so many people you don't know who the daddy is, isn't something to be proud of or "shout from the rooftops" as the phrase goes. Once again, as the Judiciary Report has repeatedly stated in the past, all publicity is not good publicity.
Side Bar: while we're on the subject, I'd just like to announce I've been dating 90-year-old Texas congressman Ralph Hall and I am going to have his baby (never mind I'm not pregnant). I'm his Anna Nicole Smith, but you know, black. You rocked my world sweet thing and I want the whole country to know it. What happens in
