A lawyer for shamed golfer Tiger Woods has filed papers asking a court to dismiss a claim the star fathered a porn star's child.

Devon James submitted legal documents in Manatee County, Fla., last month asking a judge to determine the paternity of her nine-year-old son, Austin.

The adult movie star, real name Melinda Brinling, alleged Woods had fathered her child after a fling in 2001 and insisted the golfer knows all about the boy.

She wanted to force Woods to submit to DNA testing 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 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.
