A California court has thrown out another sexual abuse lawsuit against the late Michael Jackson, who died in 2009 at age 50.

An LA County Superior Court Judge dismissed a lawsuit brought forth by Wade Robson, who sued Jackson’s estate in 2013 and accused the late pop star of sexually abusing him as a boy in the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland.

Jackson’s attorney stated: “Wade Robson has spent the last 8 years pursuing frivolous claims in different lawsuits against Michael Jackson’s estate and companies associated with it. Yet a judge has once again ruled that his claims have no merit whatsoever, that no trial is necessary.”

#MichaelJacksonWasFramed began trending on Twitter when news of the dismissal broke.
