Sometimes paying is easier. A mistake in Jacksons case imo. You will also notice that it was an out of court settlement & he was not found guilty nor did he admit guilt.
The law of the land says that he's not guilty & is entitled to the assumption of innocence
His accusers today aren't bringing his estate to court. There is no evidence for an inquiry or investigation.
Never liked his music and I thought him a dope but you have to look at these things and look at the bigger picture. There is no inquiry, investigation or civil action. Why do you suppose that is?
