    Evidence, not proof. If there is a dispute, DNA or other medical evidence is required. When you fill out a birth certificate application for your child, nobody performs a test to determine who the actual biological father is.

    Pssst: "Bets" in comedy routines aren't legally enforceable contracts. Trump knowledge of the law is about as flawed as his expertise in picking winning candidates and hairpieces.

    Most people do not need this explained to them. Oh well.
    The court establishes "proof".
    With the acceptance of the BC as evidence, and absent a challenge, the court will make the determination that the BC was sufficient.
    Which means it has been proven.

    Trump has no case. It's amazing there are 8 pages arguing about whether the short form would be enough proof in court.

    This is kicked on a MTD in every single court in the country. No reasonable person would have construed Maher's joke as an offer to enter into a contract. There's no offer, no enforceble contract to sue on. Stop pretending to know what evidence would suffice in court.

    The person resurrecting a dead topic as their first post says:

    Which is strange as it was already stated that there was not valid contract. No real challenge.

    Which doesn't preclude entertaining the BC argument had there been a real challenge.
    Which is what was being done.

    So stop pretending like you know what was happening, as you obviously didn't.


    Secondly; it would be better not to use abbreviation such as MTD (Motion To Dismiss) unless it has already been establish what it means, or you establish such in your post. This way you do not confuse the unenlightened.


    Btw, welcome to the forum.

    Maher makes about 17 million a year. He is one of those typical 1% types that is rollin in the dough and really really really really really really really REALLY really cares...but...not enough to...you know...give away his money. Im sure he could write the check on the bet. Whether he welches or not...well...we shall see.


    welches? You know this whole thing was a joke right? Bill Maher does not really think Trumps real father is an orangutan. Trump, of cours doesn't have a good grasp of humor so he is taking it vaery seriously and is out to prove that, in fact, his parent were human. The only reason this is a story now is because Trump saw an avenue for some publicity.

    I used to like Trump, a bit of a blowhard but I still liked him. These days I suspect he is off his meds.
