In Trimbel v. Gordon, 430 U.S. 762 (1977), the Supreme Court held that it was a denial of equal protection to preclude a non-marital child from inheriting from the father. Maryland implicitly adopts this result by statute in Estates and Trusts Article § 1-208. As noted previously, the Maryland statute provides that an illegitimate child shall inherit from the father provided such child can establish paternity.
