Michael Jackson’s Accusers To Take Abuse Case To Trial Again

Two Michael Jackson accusers who were featured in the 2019 HBO documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’ Wade Robson and James Safechuck have been allowed to proceed with a lawsuit against the late pop star’s corporations.

Wade Robson and James Safechuck accused Jackson of sexually abusing them when they were children in the 1980s and 90s and claim MJJ Productions staff helped cover up abusive behaviour.

Previously, California law required sexual assault lawsuits to be filed by the time the victim turned 26. However, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a new law in 2020, and the accusers attempted to file again the following year but were unsuccessful.

Now, having appealed the case, the two will now have their case tried against the late King of Pop’s companies in front of a jury in the lower courts, according to court documents.
