Last Tuesday, the Mississippi Court of Appeals decided Flynn v. Bland located here. One of the issues in the case was the changing of a minor child's surname upon determining paternity. The Court of Appeals ruled that it was reversible error to not change the surname since the opposing party failed to present any proof to rebut the statutory requirements. I am not going to comment much on the case since it is one of my appellate cases. The issue of custody is currently up on rehearing.
