An L.A. judge agreed to throw out Wade Robson’s lawsuit against the estate of Michael Jackson, agreeing that they can’t be sued by Wade over alleged childhood sexual abuse.

Robson sued the estate in 2013 claiming, Jackson sexually abused him for nearly a decade. He also sued MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures.

 L.A. County Superior Court Judge Mark A. Young agreed with the estate that it had no relationship with Robson.

“There is no evidence supporting Plaintiff’s contention that Defendants exercised control over Jackson,” writes Young. “The evidence further demonstrates that Defendants 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 between Defendants and Plaintiff. In addition, there is no evidence of misfeasance by Defendants.”


Robson’s attorney says they will be taking it to the court of appeal.

“As of today, a summary judgment AGAINST Wade Robson has been granted three different times by two different judges of the Superior Court,” an attorney for the estate said in a statement per THR. “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.”
