On Monday, a Los Angeles judge ruled to dismiss a 2013 lawsuit brought against two of Michael Jackson’s entertainment companies by now-38-year-old choreographer Wade Robson, Fox News reports.
In the lawsuit, Robson alleged that “Jackson’s companies MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures failed in their duty to protect him when they hired him from Australia to work with the star.”
“There is no evidence supporting plaintiff’s contention that defendants exercised control over Jackson,” Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark A. Young wrote in his decision to dismiss the suit. “The evidence further demonstrates that defendants had no legal ability to control Jackson, because Jackson had complete and total ownership of the corporate defendants.”
