Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Lawyer Wants Wade Robson's Late Creditor's Claim Dismissed

A lawyer for Michael Jackson's estate has asked a California judge to reject choreographer Wade Robson's request to file a late creditor's claim amid allegations he was sexually abused by the King of Pop as a child.

Robson, who has worked with stars including Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, filed suit against the estate in May (13) and requested court permission to lodge a notice for financial compensation long after the estate deadline.

The dancer alleged he was unaware there was a cut-off point for creditor's claims, but estate attorney Howard Weitzman insists Robson is well connected enough in the music industry to have known about the deadline, especially because it was such a high-profile case.

Weitzman wants the judge to dismiss Robson's claim because of its late filing, reports Tmz.com.

The choreographer, now 30, maintains he was abused by the singer between the ages of seven and 14 at the superstar's California and Las Vegas homes, despite taking the stand at the singer's 2005 child molestation trial to deny he had ever been abused by the pop idol.

Jackson died from an accidental overdose in 2009.
