The lawsuit claims a series of stories published by the gossip website defame the late King of Pop and his three nephews.
Radar has built a business of publishing false, embarrassing and hurtful gossip for profit, story immediately copied and pasted by hundreds of "journalists" around the world.
"Radar has tried to profit by launching a vicious and unrelenting attack on [Jackson] based on claims that, years ago, he was guilty of sexual abuse, even though, at the time, he was found 'not guilty' of that very charge," the plaintiffs' lawyer writes. "Radar represents its 'reports' as 'new' and based on official 'Detective Reports.' Not only have those Detective Reports been available to the public for many years, Radar has misrepresented what the Reports say."
The complaint adds the Jacksons demanded a correction of the libelous stories on July 5 and received a refusal from Radar two days later.
We, at MJPortal.com, hope this "first time" someone sues a tabloid for defamatory and false allegations will serve as an example for other jackals in the future.
