The Illinois Supreme Court decided Wednesday that it will not hear the case by Karla Knafel against basketball legend Michael Jordan.
The state's highest court decided Wednesday that it will not hear an appeal in a long-running child paternity dispute between Knafel and Jordan.
Jordan and Knafel went to court in 2002 after Knafel claimed he agreed in 1991 to pay her $5 million when he retired from the NBA as long as she kept their affair secret.
DNA tests later showed that Jordan was not the father of the child. He claimed Knafel was trying to extort him, and he won an appellate court decision last December.
Knafel asked the state's highest court to reconsider, but it refused without explaining why.
Jordan recently got divorced from his wife Juanita in 2006. The two got married in September 1989.
