Michael Jordan paternity lawsuit withdrawn
ATLANTA (KABC) -- An Atlanta woman withdrew a paternity lawsuit against former professional basketball player Michael Jordan Friday.
The woman's attorney said she withdrew the lawsuit Friday "without prejudice," which means it can be re-filed.
Pamela Smith filed a lawsuit against the NBA hall-of-famer in February. She claims Jordan is the father of her 16-year-old son. She requested Jordan take a paternity test and pay child support. Jordan has denied he's the father.
A spokeswoman for Jordan said there was no settlement or money paid to Smith.
Pamela Smith "stands by the facts alleged in her original filing," her Atlanta attorney Randall Kessler said Monday.
