Estate of Michael Jackson Wins Leaving Neverland Appeal


Last year HBO aired an unauthorized documentary about Michael Jackson and claims of child molestation at his Neverland ranch [click here if you missed that]. 

Now the Jackson Estate has won an appeal to sue the network...

From Variety
An appeals court on Monday handed a victory to the estate of Michael Jackson in its battle over the 2019 HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland,” which accused the late singer of sexually abusing two young boys.
The Jackson estate sued HBO for $100 million, arguing that the documentary violated a 27-year-old non-disparagement clause from a 1992 concert film from the “Dangerous” tour. HBO has argued that the clause is irrelevant to the present dispute and accuses the Jackson estate of seeking to silence victims of sexual abuse.
Last year, a lower court granted the estate’s motion to take the dispute to arbitration, as provided by the contract. HBO appealed, but on Monday a three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal upheld the lower court ruling. The judges conceded that the suit may be “frivolous,” as HBO has claimed, but said it will be up to an arbitrator to make that call.

Had he not had all them random ass young boy's having "sleep over's" with his grown ass. None of this mess would be tarnishing his incredible legacy. As a grown ass woman with critical thinking skills, that can think for myself with out media propaganda and emotionalism. The idea a grown ass man was having little boys doing sleep over's with his grown ass, idgaf how famous yo ass is. You get the proverbial *side eye* nobody is perfect and we know that world is all types fucked up, but when it comes to children being preyed upon. I draw the line. I get the legal standpoint, but it's a waste of money the damage has already been done.

I agree 100%. I'm 35. What the hell do I look like having sleep overs with little girls, unless I'm throwing a sleepover for my niece or daughter? What has only child guests did their own enjoyment??? MJ was fucked up.
