ATLANTA, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- The Atlanta woman who claimed basketball legend Michael Jordan fathered her child had her suit dismissed and must pay Jordan's legal fees, court records said.

Laquetta Theus, 30, filed a paternity suit in August, claiming Jordan was the father of her daughter, 3, but a paternity test determined another man, Hubert Henderson Jr., was the father of the child.

Theus, whose case proceeded in an Atlanta court without an attorney, also contended Jordan used Henderson's name as an alias, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday.

In dismissing Theus' case the presiding judge ordered her to pay Jordan's legal fees of $6,510.61, John Mayoue, Jordan's attorney, said.
