Michael Jackson trends online once again for the Wade Robson case that was dismissed by a judge.
The estate of Michael Jackson according to the Blast, was able to get the judge presiding over the Wade Robson case to agree that the estate had no legal duty to protect him from any type of molestation.
Robson sued in 2013 claiming Jackson sexually abused him for nearly a decade and his companies MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures facilitated the conduct. The estate, which controls the entities, argued it’s entitled to summary judgment because the companies owed Robson no legal duty and had no ability to control Jackson’s behavior.
Michael Jackson’s estate has been represented in the matter by the late Howard Weitzman and Jonathan Steinsapir, who on Monday sent The Hollywood Reporter a statement in response to the decision.
“As of today, a summary judgment AGAINST Wade Robson has been granted three different times by two different judges of the Superior Court,” says Steinsapir. “Wade Robson has spent the last 8 years pursuing frivolous claims in different lawsuits against Michael Jackson’s estate and companies associated with it. Robson has taken nearly three dozen depositions and inspected and presented hundreds of thousands of documents trying to prove his claims, yet a Judge has once again ruled that Robson’s claims have no merit whatsoever, that no trial is necessary and that his latest case is dismissed.”

MICHAEL JACKSON ABSOLVED: A judge threw out Wade Robson's case today. This after a different judge threw out James Safechuck's case. The Leaving Neverland duo doesn't appear credible in the eyes of the courts. The only ones that believe them are HBO and Oprah. #MJInnocent pic.twitter.com/rWxfyUEN6k
