Although talk show host Sally Jesse Raphael’s studio audience cheered last January when her guest cited DNA test results that allegedly proved he was not the father of an 11-year-old boy, a Family Court judge in Suffolk County said he will not accept the test results in the father’s efforts to renounce paternity.

Judge Kerry R. Trainor in Barbara Ann W. v. David Wy, filed last week in Family Court, Suffolk County, declined to accept the test performed for the television talk show even though it was performed by a state-certified laboratory. In a proceeding seeking to vacate an order of filiation entered eight years ago, the judge said the test did not conform to the state’s regulations for conducting paternity testing.
