Michael Jackson Sexual Abuse Lawsuits On Verge Of Revival By Appeals Court

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California appeals court will consider reviving the lawsuits of two men who allege Michael Jackson sexually abused them as children.

After hearing oral arguments Wednesday, the court could order the two cases to trial.

The lawsuits were filed after Jackson’s death by Wade Robson in 2013 and James Safechuck in 2014.

The two became known for telling their stories on the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland.”

They sued two corporations that were owned by Jackson, alleging the companies had a duty to protect them from years of abuse.

A judge disagreed, and two years ago threw out the lawsuits.

That ruling could soon be overturned.
