By ANDREW DALTON LOS ANGELES –
A judge on Monday dismissed the lawsuit against a man who alleged that Michael Jackson sexually assaulted him as a boy.
Judge Mark A. Young of the Los Angeles County Superior Court has granted the Jackson estate’s request to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Wade Robson in 2013. The judge said two Jackson entertainment companies targeted by the lawsuit had no legal obligation to protect Robson from Jackson.
