ATLANTA (CNN) -- A court in Georgia has dismissed a paternity suit against basketball legend Michael Jordan.

Pamela Y. Smith had accused Jordan of fathering her son. Jordan responded, according to court papers, that he was "not the father of this child whose paternity has been conclusively established in a court of law. Any allegations to the contrary are decidedly false."

Smith and her attorneys requested "immediate genetic testing" of Jordan on March 12, and Smith dismissed her complaint "and all subsequent pleadings without prejudice" last Friday.
