Bill Manser and Elizabeth Sehr appeared on the television show Paternity Court somewhere in 2013 to settle a misunderstanding over whether Manser was the father of Sehr’s son, Dylan. According to reports, Sehr had earlier obtained a paternity test from a lab.
The result indicated there was a 99.6% probability that Manser was the father. This made Manser to be paying child support for Dylan for many years. Deep down, he always had the feeling that he was not the father of Dylan and Sehr’s result was forged.
When they appeared on Paternity Court, newly conducted DNA tests suggested that Manser was not the father of Dylan after all. It was also revealed that there was evidence that Sehr had tampered with the original paternity test results.
Aftermath of the show, the duo filed a lawsuit against the lab that conducted the original paternity test. The lab agreed to settle the lawsuit for $1.2 million.
The case of Manser vs. Sehr is evident that one needs to obtain DNA testing from a reputable lab. The case also revealed the resilience of Bill Manser, who was able to clear his name and prove that he was not the father of Dylan.
