The Two Men Who Judge The Michael Jackson Estate and Are the Subject of Downloading the Documentary "Leaving Neverland" … Their Day in Court, for to file a sexual abuse claim against the singer's estate.
As you may know … Wade Robson and James Safechuck are suing MJ for sexual assault, but their cases were dropped in 2017 – partly due to limitation. Both have appealed their decisions and the cases have remained in the Court of Appeal … until now.
We have learned that the Court of Appeals of California has just issued a preliminary ruling that will overturn the dismissals based on a new California statute of limitations on child sexual abuse cases. This means that Robson and Safechuck can have their cases heard before the jury.
This is not a done deal. As we said, the decision is preliminary. Oral arguments are set for this week and jurors could change their minds, but usually the landmark ruling stands.
Now MJ Estate has a number of other objections to claims that will be considered by a judge in the case.  The story of Wade and James aired on HBO in January, and their claims of abuse triggered a movement to silence Michael Jackson and further diminish his legacy. The Jackson family called "Leaving Neverland Unjust" Public Lynching . "
We reached out to MJ Estate and the alleged victims. They all had no comment.
