PARIS (AP) – Three Michael Jackson fanatics in France sue two men who accused the singer of sexual abuse in the HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland".
The lawsuit accuses Wade Robson and James Safechuck of harming the reputation of the pop king, who died ten years ago.
A fan club lawyer, Emmanuel Ludot, said he is looking for a conviction under a French law against the public complaint of a deceased person.
Fans clubs request a euro for symbolic damages.
A court of the French city of Orleans held an audience on Thursday. A lawyer represented Robson and Safechuck, who in the documentary described years of alleged sexual abuse when they were children and adolescents.
Jackson's property denies the accusations and sends a letter supporting the lawsuit.
