The California Court of Appeal issued a tentative ruling today which could overturn the dismissals of the cases of Robson and Safechuck, on grounds of a which extends the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse cases. This means Robson and Safechuck could have their cases heard before a jury.
Howard Weitzman, attorney for the Jackson Estate, says they understand “the Court of Appeal agrees that these cases must be returned to the trial court to be analyzed under the new law signed by Governor Newsom.” However, he adds “The Appellate Court’s tentative ruling is not on the merits of Robson and Safechuck’s allegations and the Court in no way said that these cases will go to trial.” Weitzman says the estate remains confident the claims “will, once again, be dismissed as has happened before.”
