Scott v. Thompson, G041860

In plaintiff's claims for wrongful death, negligence, and dangerous condition of public property arising from a traffic accident in which her half-brother was killed by an intoxicated driver, trial court's judgment dismissing plaintiff's claims and grant of the half-brother's presumed father's motion for summary adjudication is affirmed as plaintiff's lack of standing to challenge the presumed father's paternity under the marital presumption eviscerates her claim.
