The Orlando Sentinel (Tim Povtak) reports: A paternity suit was filed Friday against Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard in Orange County Circuit Court, asking to establish his fatherhood officially and determine child support and other parental responsibilities. The suit was filed by attorneys for Royce Lyndsay Reed, a Central Florida woman whom he already has said gave birth to his son, Braylon Joshua Robert Howard, on Nov. 18, 2007. When asked about the suit before the game Friday, Howard declined any comment. According to the suit, Reed is requesting the court award “child support determined by Florida’s Child Support Guidelines.” Those guidelines normally take into account several factors, including parental income, the child’s medical needs and child care.
