In re:  Giusseppe Mendez v. James Andrew Davis, 10-CV-2184-10

Atlanta, GA - Superior Court of Dekalb County.  Russell H. Hippe, representing the Petitioner Ms. Mendez in this case, secured a final paternity and support order against Mr. Davis, an NFL player who has played with the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins.  

The case involved a petition to establish paternity and support for an infant child.  Mr. Hippe had this to say about the case:  “My client was a student who was struggling with the expenses of her baby.  She just wanted to be fair.  It was unfortunate that I had to take Mr. Davis to court and put him on trial to get basic support but that is what it took.”

The case went on for over a year, and he never offered any kind of reasonable settlement out of court.  Russell Hippe stated: “I had to put him in front of the judge to get anything from him, whether on a temporary or final basis.  All I can say is I hope he will pay his support and be involved in the child’s life, and so does my client.”
