A judge in a Maryland court dismissed the support claim of Chris Bosh's former girlfriend Allison Mathis in Maryland in a hearing yesterday citing the states lack of jurisdiction in the matter.

The Maryland court system will have jurisdiction over the child custody portion of the case.

Mathis filed suit last November claiming Bosh was refusing support for their daughter who was born two months after Bosh ended the relationship.

Bosh and his lawyers denied that accusation in their response to the lawsuit backed by e-mails that appear to show Bosh's willingness to live up to his financial responsibilities as a father.

Bosh, in fact, filed suit in a Texas court last October attempting to have the question of support settled in court there.

Neither Bosh nor Mathis attended yesterday's hearing. Both were represented by their respective attorney's.

His agent, Henry Thomas, said Bosh was happy with yesterday's events.

"For Chris, he is pleased that the matter is progressing and hopes that it will be resolved in an amicable fashion as soon as possible," Thomas said.

"He is optimistic that the support and custody issues will be worked out in the near future so that he can continue to provide for his daughter and spend time with her on a regular basis."

Up and down day

Quincy Douby will be hanging around for at least another 10 days. The Raptors signed him to a second 10-day contract yesterday.

The news was not so good for rookie forward/centre Nathan Jawai. For the second time this year, Jawai has been assigned to the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League. Earlier this year with Idaho, Jawai averaged 12.2 points.
