           Ramsey County District Court, Hon. Brad A. Johnson.
           Minnesota Statutes section 257.75, subdivision 3 (2012), does not bar a county providing public assistance to a child from filing a parentage action to adjudicate the father-child relationship even though a minor parent has signed a "recognition of parentage" and no competing presumptions of paternity exist.

       State of Minnesota, Appellant, vs. Derek Lawrence Stavish, Respondent.

           When a police officer is responsible for procuring a blood sample from an individual who has stated that he was the driver of a vehicle involved in a probable criminal vehicular homicide and who has already been transported to a hospital, exigent circumstances exist that justify the police officer's procuring the blood sample without a search warrant.
