MICHAEL JACKSON MOLESTATION ALLEGATIONS BY WADE ROBSON WILL GO TO TRIAL

Michael Jackson will effectively be tried for allegedly molesting choreographer Wade Robson when he was a child.
The California Court of Appeal just cleared the way for Robson to make his case — alleging MJ molested him at the Neverland Ranch when Robson was between the ages of 7 and 14.
The issue — Robson is suing Michael Jackson’s corporation — MJJ Productions, Inc. Jackson’s company lawyers argued the company had no legal duty to protect Robson or anyone else from MJ because it had no ability to control him.
The trial court bought the Estate’s argument, but the Court of Appeal begged to differ, and according to a tentative ruling — which almost always becomes final — the case will be sent back down for trial.
Robson claims when he came to the U.S. from Australia as a young boy, Jackson befriended him and sexually abused him.
In 2005, when Jackson was on trial for molesting another boy, Robson testified that he slept in MJ’s bed with the singer but nothing happened. He changed his story in 2013, filing a lawsuit against the company. He said he had testified falsely on behalf of Jackson due to “complete manipulation and brainwashing.”
