Lawsuits by victims of Michael Jackson may continue

2 min read

Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who accuse Michael Jackson in the documentary Leaving Neverland of sexual abuse, may still have the opportunity to keep their story in court. TMZ reports this.

The men, who claim to have fallen victim to the King of Pop as a child, sued the singer in 2017 for sexual abuse. However, the cases were dismissed because of the limitation period. Both Wade and James appealed. They are still awaiting a decision. According to insiders, the judge will be considering the cases this week because a new law has been passed in California extending the limitation period for sexual abuse. Michael Jackson, who died in 2009, could therefore still be found guilty of sexual abuse by the court.

The HBO documentary Leaving Neverland caused quite a stir at the start of this year. For example, several radio stations decided to no longer play Michael Jackson’s music and the singer’s artworks were removed from various museums.

Michael Jackson’s relatives denied the allegations and rejected the film. They also sued HBO for breach of contract. An agreement between the broadcaster and the singer from 1992, which was signed because of the broadcast of a concert, stated that HBO may not humiliate or disgrace the singer. According to the Jacksons, that had happened by showing the documentary. The judge ruled in favor last month, HBO appealed.
