NOW comes the latest in the ongoing saga involving the late great Michael Jackson, who was without a doubt the most beloved entertainer and humanitarian that ever lived. Yet that is not enough for some…those that choose to wait until after his untimely death to launch yet another attack on his good name, reputation and heart. One such attacker is Wade Robinson, who decided to wait until after the death of Michael Jackson, on June 25th, 2009, to file a late claim against Michael’s estate alleging child molestation.
WHAT I find odd is how Mr. Robson had NO RECOLLECTION of being molested. Strange since he was the “Star” witness for Michael Jackson’s defense at the 2005 trial. Never mind the fact that the trial took place 8 years prior to his late claim filing. Like rape; being molested is not something that one would forget, so if Wade was in fact molested, then why did this come out 8 years ago? Why was he the star witness for the defense during Michael’s 2005 trial?
IF he was, in fact, molested he had 8 years minimum to bring about a suit and or claim against Mr. Jackson but did not…wonder why that is? Also; why wait until AFTER THE DEATH OF MICHAEL JACKSON TO FILE A LATE CLAIM? Could it be that this would be an easier path to money since the decedent is no longer alive to speak and act in his defense? I would think so; why else would Wade wait all this time and after the death of Michael Jackson to file his late claim?
THIS law, CA SB 131 which was amended on May 2, 2013; one day after Wade Robson filed his claim will serve as a detriment to legitimate claims and victims of sexual assaults and abuse. While on the flip side it can bring financial ruin to the estates of the accused…especially those that are deceased. Decedents are not able to defend themselves directly; which makes them very susceptible to bogus claims against their estate and bring about ruin to the survivors of the decedent.
The Governor needs to review CA SB 131 as it is a gateway to massive abuse and transparent litigation. No such late claims should be filed against one’s estate after such individual dies as they cannot speak directly on their behalf. CA Governor Vetoes SB 131
