The ‘Billy Jean’ singer’s estate convinced an L.A. judge to side with their position claiming the entities had no relationship with Robson and no legal duty to protect him from any type of molestation.
In 2013, Robson sued Jackson for allegedly sexually abusing him for a decade and claimed the companies facilitated the conduct.
After the decision was announced, “MJInnocent” started trending on Twitter, with many of the King of Pop’s fans touting the victory.

According to the decision, “There is no evidence supporting (Robson’s) contention that (MJ’s Companies) exercised control over Jackson.”
It continued, “The evidence further demonstrates that (the companies) had no legal ability to control Jackson because Jackson had complete and total ownership of the corporate defendants. Without control, there is no special relationship or duty that exists.”
Michael Jackson’s estate issued a statement following the victory, saying, “As of today, a summary judgment AGAINST Wade Robson has been granted three different times by two different judges of the Superior Court.”
Adding, “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.”

The situation might be a short-lived victory after Robson’s attorney said the dancer will fight the ruling in the appellate court. Wade’s lawyer says they are willing to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
“We will be appealing it to the Court of Appeal, and to the Supreme Court if necessary. If allowed to stand, the decision would set a dangerous precedent that would leave thousands of children working in the entertainment industry vulnerable to sexual abuse by persons in places of power. The children of our state deserve protection, and we will not stop fighting until we ensure that every child is safe,” he said.
