Snipes Cleared of Paternity Suit



A paternity lawsuit against Wesley Snipes was dismissed after a DNA test determined that another man was the father

Recall your mind back to the year of 2002. At that time, a woman named Lanise Pettis filed a paternity lawsuit against actor Wesley Snipes, alleging he was the father of her 3-year-old son as a result of their having sex in a Chicago crack house. While Snipes refused to submit to a paternity test, an unnamed man willingly took a DNA test and was determined to be the father of the child.

And last Thursday, Family Court Judge Mary Bednar dismissed the lawsuit, about which Snipes commented "The good Lord says `Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor.' These are the tenets I live by." Adding details on the court decision, the star lawyer Robert Bernhoft said that oral arguments in his lawsuit are scheduled to be heard at the U.S. Court of Appeals in the 2nd Circuit in late November.
