The Ongoing Trials of The Late Michael Jackson

Twists and Turns

It seems that the family of the boy, who has accused Michael Jackson of molestation, have registered a claim against the County of Los Angeles.

They allege that they were damaged by a "leak", to a popular website, of a confidential memo detailing how a child welfare probe concluded that the family's allegations of abuse against the singer were "unfounded."

The family have claimed damages (it always comes down to money, doesn't it?), and it looks like that there may be a civil case at some stage in the future.

The "legalese" of the claim alleges that the Department of Children & Family Services has been guilty of a "total failure" to protect the privacy rights of the accuser and his immediate family.

Aside from an apology, it does look as though they are after money as well.

If this is true, then I find the whole thing pretty sordid. To my view, if the accusations against Jackson are truthful, then the family should concentrate on that court case; and try to limit further damage to their son by getting involved in another case which on the face of it seems to be about getting money.
