A Wisconsin judge ruled that an absentee father whose son was conceived with his 15-year-old cousin is not entitled to a portion of a settlement for the son’s wrongful death, the ABA Journal reports. Judge David Borowski said he would not allow “a six-figure windfall” to Marcus Crumble, whose son died at age 25 at a mental health facility in 2012. Giving Crumble half of the $837,000 settlement would amount to unjust enrichment, Borowski said.
