Massachusetts, Paternity and DNA

The Massachusetts Supreme Court has ruled a man is legally obligated to continue to pay child support for a little girl -- after a DNA test proved that he is not her father. Linda Wertheimer talks with Elizabeth Bartholet, a professor of family law at Harvard Law School and author of Nobody's Children. (4:00) Nobody's Children is published by Beacon, 1999.
