In a rare piece of good news for Michael Jackson claims made against Jackson, by Daniel Kapon, for child molestation and fraud have been dismissed by a Los Angeles judge.
Kapon has accused Jackson of "repeatedly and forcefully sexually molested him" from when he was two until he was 14.
L.A. Superior Court Judge Rolf Treu dismissed the molestation claim, along with charges of plagiarism, conversion, breach of contract, accounting fraud, negligence, civil conspiracy and unfair business practices.
However, allegations of assault, battery, willful misconduct, false imprisonment and sexual battery are still open.
Kapon filed a suit in January 2006 in Orange County. The suit alleged that Jackson forced him to take drugs, drink alcohol and subjected him to unnecessary cosmetic surgery, and burned, tortured and beat him.
Kapon claims that he was occasionally held captive in a car as well as at Neverland.
Kapon also claims that Jackson stole Kapon's song lyrics, ideas and melodies during the years when Bad, Dangerous, HIStory, and Blood on the Dance Floor were released. It should be noted that Kapon was aged between four and 14 at that stage.
The remaining case is scheduled to go to trial June 4 2007.
