A Baltimore man is suing over a take-home paternity test he says incorrectly indicated he was the father of a 1-year-old girl. 

The Daily Record reports Nnanaka Nwofor wants the Ohio company to pay $75,000 for the cost of supporting the child and her mother and the pain of learning he wasn't the father. 

The lawsuit filed last week says the Fairfield-based DNA Diagnostics Center Inc. claims its paternity tests are 100% accurate. 

The lawsuit says he took a take-home paternity test in may 2019 that said he was 99.99% likely to be the girl's biological father. That result was disproven by follow-up tests.
