What best interests?

More proof that there is no law in the USA, only pronouncements from the bench:

Sixteen months after his divorce, Richard Parker made a devastating discovery. A DNA test revealed that his 3-year-old son had been fathered by someone else.

Mr. Parker immediately filed a lawsuit claiming fraud by his apparently unfaithful ex-wife. He took his case all the way to the Florida Supreme Court.

Last week, the Florida justices ruled 7-0 against him. They said that Parker must continue to pay $1,200 a month in child support because he had missed the one-year postdivorce deadline for filing his lawsuit. His court-ordered payments would total more than $200,000 over 15 years to support another man’s child.

No doubt he’ll be labled a “deadbeat dad” despite not, in fact, being a father at all. Of course, if the court genuinely had the interests of the child in mind, they wouldn’t have left it with the lying cow in the first place.

The thing is, all contracts are null and void if there is fraud on the part of one of the contracting parties. You can’t be held liable for something that isn’t yours, except, of course, when a judge magically declares you to be on some imaginary basis.

And this is just yet another example of how women are legally inferior to men, given the courts’ customary expectation that they are incapable of providing for themselves or their offspring, whereas a man is quite clearly considered capable of providing even for those who are not his.
