Michael Jackson Molestation Case Dismissed

Another Michael Jackson lawsuit has been relegated to the HIStory books.

Last Thursday, a federal judge in New Orleans threw out a case brought in 2004 against the pop star by a man claiming he was molested by Jackson in 1984.

U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon's ruling was posted on the court's Website Monday without going into detail as to how he arrived at the decision.

"I'm basically shocked," Louis Koerner, the plaintiff's lawyer, told reporters.

The plaintiff, who was 18 in 1984, alleged that he was lured into Jackson's limousine during the World's Fair in New Orleans and was held against his will for nine days. During that time, the lawsuit said, the young man was sexually and physically assaulted.

According to Louisiana state law, the statute of limitations in a case of abuse where the victim is an adult is one year, but the plaintiff argued that his timeframe didn't begin until 2003, when he first remembered what happened to him.

Koerner argued in court that this client had repressed the memory, that he was so traumatized from the abuse he blocked it all out. According to the lawsuit, the young man was held at gunpoint, cut with razor blades by Jackson's bodyguards and had his head slammed against the ground. Only when he watched a TV show about the recent molestation criminal case against Jackson did he remember what happened to him, the attorney said.

"We're pleased with the results," Jackson lawyer Brian Oxman told reporters Monday. "It's time to get on to new and better things."
