Tristan Thompson Seeks Default Judgement in Paternity Case

Back in May Cleveland Cavaliers Tristan Thompson filed a defamation of character lawsuit against a woman claiming he was the father of her child [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Tristian is seeking a default judgment...

Thompson submitted a request for default judgment, as well as a new declaration in support of his request to gain back his reputation and expenses paid to bring this case to court.
In newly filed court documents, obtained by The Blast, Thompson is asking the court to grant him a judgment due to Alexander not filing a response by the deadline, despite being served. He makes his case for why he deserves a ton in damages from Alexander.
Thompson's attorney's claim "Kimberly Alexander’s false and defamatory statements about Thompson, falsely stating that he faked or sabotaged the DNA test results, that he is the father of her child and that he has neglected the child since birth are extremely damaging to Thompson’s personal and professional reputation. Alexander further falsely accused him of manipulating and sabotaging the DNA test results, which has a significant detrimental effect on Plaintiff’s career as a professional athlete and brand endorser."
