Child Support Claim Against Lewis Estate Nixed

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware judge says a woman who gave birth to a child fathered by boxing promoter Butch Lewis before he died is not entitled to child support from his estate.

The judge ruled Monday that Louise Cummings filed her child support claim too late. Delaware's probate law requires claims that arose before a person's death to be filed within eight months of his or her passing, but Cummings filed her claim 13 months after Lewis died in 2011.

According to court records, Cummings gave birth in April 2012, nine months after Lewis died. She has filed a separate claim under Delaware's "after-born" statute for her daughter to be declared a beneficiary of Lewis' estate.
