In 2014, Wade and James filled lawsuits against Michael but it was established that the application should have been filed before their 26th birthday.
Things however changed in January when a law was passed allowing accusers to file cases before their 40th birthday.
The lawyer representing the two accusers welcomed the news saying that it was a good thing the court has recognized the protection of sexually abused victims.
It was a different reaction from the lawyer representing the late pop star’s estate saying that the law will also include all its employees.
