Appeal Court to LA County: 'We Won't Sully our Hands' Enforcing False Paternity Judgments

The Second District Court of Appeal recently dealt a devastating blow to the
efforts of Los Angeles County and others to collect child support based on false
paternity judgments. In /County of Los Angeles v. Navarro/, Manuel Navarro was
trapped into a default judgment because he did not learn of the paternity
proceedings against him before the time limits to contest the judgment had run
out. In an opinion dripping with contempt, Justice Rubin wrote:

"By strict application of the law, appellant should be denied
relief....Sometimes even more important policies than the finality of judgments
are at stake, however...the County...should not enforce child-support judgments
it knows to be unfounded. And in particular, it should not ask the courts to
assist it in doing so...We will not sully our hands by participating in an
unjust, and factually unfounded, result. We say no to the County, and we reverse."

As a result of /Navarro/, tens of thousands of men who are currently paying
child support for children who are not theirs can file to have their false
paternity judgments set aside.

Linda Ferrer is the attorney who won the /Navarro/ case. Dr. Robert Archer of
Genetic Identity is a scientist who sees paternity
fraud perpetrated on his clients. Marc Angelucci of the National Coalition of
Free Men Los Angeles and Taron James

paternity fraud legislation in California. They will join Glenn on /His Side

A true soldier fights, not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves whats behind him...dear parents, please remember not to continue to fight because you hate your ex, but because you love your children.
