A California appeals court is strongly inclined to give new life to lawsuits filed by Robson and James Safechuck who accuse Michael Jackson of molesting them when they were boys.

The decision is based on a new California law that gives sex abuse victims far longer to sue. (Photo by Taylor Jewell/Invision/AP)
