Can't Michael Jackson Rest in Peace ~by Legal Pub

Has not the pop icon paid enough?  Has not his legend been tarnished to the point of no return? There are two new lawsuits against Michael Jackson's estate claiming that the pop star sexually abused them and paid money to cover up the allegations.  The suit even asks for punitive damages, as if Michael's family and legacy have not already suffered enough.

According to the New York Post, the lawsuits allege at least 20 victims and payout reaching nearly $200 million to keep it all quiet. Report  Plaintiff's lawyers hope to get evidence of the payoffs and the "bad acts" into evidence.  They also hope to introduce a taped deposition of Jackson.  (Interestingly enough, the deposition testimony denies the allegations.)

One of the alleged victims has been identified as James Safechuck.  He claims multiple abuses at the hands of Michael Jackson when James was only eight years of age. Safechuck's lawsuit alleges that his father was given a one million dollar check to keep quiet. Fortunately for Jackson's estate, there may be a procedural defense.  It appears that the cases were not timely filed against the estate.  A Los Angeles court should decide soon if the cause of actions are barred.  In the mean time, the loss suits further remind the public that Jackson can't rest, not even in death, from public scrutiny.

Author Aphrodite Jones doesn't think Jackson molested anyone, just a child stuck in an adults body...He never really grew up according to her.
