Lawyer demands Eric Garner’s kids take DNA tests before dividing $7M settlement

The lawyer for Eric Garner’s 2-year-old love child has demanded that the children of Eric Garner undergo DNA tests to prove that they are his before dividing up the $7 million settlement after their father’s death.

Lorraine Coyle, who represents 2-year-old Legacy Miller, made the shocking demand on Wednesday. During a hearing behind closed doors at the Staten Island Surrogate Court, Coyle demanded the tests because Garner’s name does not appear on the birth certificates for the other children.

Jonathan Moore, the Garner family’s lawyer, seemed shocked by what he called an “offensive” demand.

“Why do that when there’s no reason to do that?” Moore asked the New York Daily News. “Everyone knows they are his children.”

“I don’t think she (Coyle) would have said this if the Garner family had a different complexion,” Moore said.

Coyle has argued that she is only doing her “due diligence” because she does not believe Esaw Garner’s reasoning for leaving her husband’s name off the birth certificates. Esaw Garner said that she had kicked Eric Garner out of the hospital because he was “getting on my nerves” when she was going into labor and added that as for the birth certificates, “It didn’t make any difference to him, he knew they were his kids.”
