This week a Los Angeles judge tossed a child molestation case filed posthumously against Michael Jackson.
Wade Robson (mostly known for his work in Hollywood as a celebrity choreographer and star of You Got Served) alleges that Jackson molested him over a period of several years when he was a child.
According to the NY Daily News, in a 17-page order the judge ruled that Robson was too late when he filed his original lawsuit against Jackson’s probate estate in 2013 and that his later attempt to reposition the case and go after the dead pop star’s companies was also flawed.
Robson, who is now 35 reportedly, met Jackson in 1987 though a dance contest in Australia and testified during the pop icon’s 2005 molestation trial. At the time Robson denied he had been sexually abused, but later recanted, saying it took intensive therapy for him to come to terms with the abuse.
