*A lawyer for Tiger Woods is asking a court to dismiss claims from one of his mistresses that he fathered her child.

As previously reported, porn star Devon James submitted legal documents in Manatee County, Florida last month asking a judge to determine the paternity of her nine-year-old son, Austin.

The actress, real name Melinda Brinling, claimed Woods had fathered her child during a fling in 2001 – and insisted the golfer knows all about the boy.

James wanted Woods to take a DNA test as part of the paternity suit, but previously unseen documents surfaced showing an earlier paternity test had identified Austin’s father as a man named Pele Watkins.

James has denied knowing about the existence of the 2002 test – and now Woods is determined to distance himself from the scandal for good.

According to TMZ.com, his attorney has filed legal documents in court to have James’ paternity case against him dismissed because of the 2002 test results.
