Judge may unseal parts of latest Michael Jackson sex abuse claim

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge says he's leaning toward unsealing parts of a choreographer's court filings alleging he was sexually abused by Michael Jackson. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff says he needs to consider which records could be released and which should stay private before dealing with the claims made by Wade Robson. Robson asked last month to file a late creditor's claim against Jackson's estate over the abuse allegations. The filing comes nearly eight years to the day after Robson testified under oath for the singer at Jackson's 2005 sexual abuse trial. At the time Robson said Jackson never touched him in an inappropriate way. But now he says after suffering a mental breakdown last year, he is ready to come forward with his claim that Jackson did abuse him. Jackson's estate and defense attorney are dismissive of the claim, saying Robson has credibility issues - and that the suit is an attempt at a money grab.
