Spanish Judge Dismisses Woman’s Dali Paternity Claim, Orders Her to Pay Costs

MADRID – A Spanish judge dismissed on Monday a paternity lawsuit brought by a woman claiming to be the daughter of one of Spain’s most renowned painters and a late master of surrealism.

The court rejected the paternity claim of Pilar Abel, who was seeking to be recognized as the biological daughter of painter Salvador Dali.

In rejecting the case, the court’s judge ordered the plaintiff to pay court costs as requested by the State’s Prosecutor, “given the temerity” of Abel, who went ahead with her claim “knowing the result of the DNA test were compelling in their conclusions.”

Two DNA tests proved – beyond any reasonable doubt – that Dali, who had been born in the northern Catalan city of Figueres in 1904, was not the plaintiff’s biological father.

In the court statement, the judge said “not only was there not a single witness, there was only one document,” a notarial deed alleging that a third person said the plaintiff’s mother once told him that in her youth she had a covert emotional relationship with the painter, out of which Abel was born.

The judge also ruled that the DNA samples provided by Abel for the case had no validity in law since their collection had been carried out by dubious means with no control to guarantee their reliability, the statement said.
