Court Dismisses Molestation Claim Against Michael Jackson's Estate

Judge Mitchell Beckloff decides to dismiss Wade Robson's molestation claim against the late singer because he waited too long to file the lawsuit.

AceShowbiz - Child sex abuse claim against %cMichael Jackson%'s estate has been dismissed. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff decided to drop the complaint because the plaintiff, Wade Robson, had waited too long to file the legal action.

"Our motion for summary judgment was granted and Robson's request to file a late claim against the estate was denied," attorney for Jackson's estate, Howard Weitzman, told Radar Online. "The court's dismissal of Wade Robson's claim against the Estate of Michael Jackson confirms that his lawsuit was inappropriately filed."

Weitzman added, "Mr. Robson testified under oath in a courtroom that Michael never did anything improper with him. The Estate believes his testimony was honest when his sole motivation was 'to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.' "

Robson filed the complaint in May 2013. Attorney for Robson, Maryann Marzano, claimed in the lawsuit that Jackson had sexually abused the dancer for several years, starting from 1990 until 1997.

Mazano previously insisted that the claim should be allowed to proceed although it was filed years after Jackson's passing. The lawyer argued that his client didn't realize he was molested by the singer before undergoing therapy.

"We are confident that when all the facts are presented in civil court, there will be no doubt left about just what kind of sexual predator Jackson was," Marzano wrote previously.
