U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon is seeking more information about repressed memories, before deciding whether to dismiss a lawsuit by Joseph Bartucci Jr. who claims that he was molested by Michael Jackson over than 20 years ago.
Jackson's lawyer, Charles F. Gay Jr., has asked Judge Fallon to throw out the suit by Bartucci, because the alleged incident happened more than 20 years ago.
Bartucci claims that he was lured into Jackson's limousine in 1984, and held for nine days during which he was sexually assaulted.
Jackson's attorneys are quoted as saying:
"They have no facts or evidence to support the claim of repressed memory."
Judge Fallon has asked Attorney Louis Koerner, who represents Bartucci, to depose Dr. L. Mulry Tetlow, a psychologist who agreed that Bartucci had repressed the memory.
Lawyers for Jackson claim that Bartucci was a party to 18 civil suits and criminal complaints over the past 17 years.
That being said, Jackson is no stranger to taking legal action either.
