ERIE, Pa. (AP) - A woman who claims Michael Jordan fathered her child wants the former NBA star to submit to a third paternity test.
Lisa Miceli also is asking a judge to lift a temporary restraining order imposed after Jordan filed a harassment suit against her.
Miceli, 35, of Meadville, claims Jordan fathered her 4-year-old son, but Jordan's lawsuit says a pair of 2005 paternity tests rule him out as the boy's father.
Jordan's attorney Frederick J. Sperling participated in a hearing by phone Friday, denying Miceli's claims that the restraining order prevents her from negotiating a child-support agreement settlement with Jordan.
``There is not going to be a settlement,'' Sperling told Crawford County Judge Gordon Miller. ``Mr. Jordan is not the father of her child, and we're not going to engage in any discussions on that.''
Miller did not immediately rule on Miceli's request for a third test.
Sperling declined to comment Saturday when contacted by The Associated Press, saying the response he filed ``speaks for us.''
That response says Jordan consented to the second paternity test on the condition that Miceli have no contact with him if he was ruled out as the child's father. The second genetic test did just that, the response said.
