Woman fights Michael Jordan's harassment suit

ERIE, Pa. - A woman who claims Michael Jordan fathered her child wants the former NBA star to submit to a third paternity test.

Lisa Miceli also is asking a judge to lift a temporary restraining order imposed after Jordan filed a harassment suit against her.

Miceli, 35, of Meadville, claims Jordan fathered her 4-year-old son, but Jordan's lawsuit says a pair of 2005 paternity tests rule him out as the boy's father.

Jordan's attorney Frederick J. Sperling participated in a hearing by phone Friday, denying Miceli's claims that the restraining order prevents her from negotiating a child-support agreement settlement with Jordan.

Aaron Neville plans to return to New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS - Aaron Neville is finally coming home to New Orleans - almost.

The R&B singer, who bought a house in Brentwood, Tenn., after Hurricane Katrina, said he's buying a home near Covington, across Lake Pontchartrain about 40 miles from New Orleans. He expects to close on the property in the coming weeks.

""It's nice,' he told The Times-Picayune newspaper for a story on its Web site Friday. ""I can sit outside and watch the sun go down, then drive on in to New Orleans.'

Neville was on tour with the Neville Brothers when Katrina hit in August 2005, leaving much of the city under water. Though he watched the disaster unfold from a distance, he couldn't see himself returning.

UK appealing court decision allowing Snoop Dogg into country

LONDON - Britain is appealing a court's decision to allow Snoop Dogg into the country, the Border Agency said Friday.

He was barred from Britain after he was arrested on charges of violent disorder at London's Heathrow Airport in 2006. But the hip-hop heavyweight successfully appealed the ban and received entry clearance from an asylum and immigration tribunal in January.

The Border Agency said Friday it would challenge the ruling at a hearing next week.
