Three Michael Jackson fan clubs in France are suing two men who accused the singer of sexual abuse in the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland.

A lawyer for the fan clubs, Emmanuel Ludot, said he is seeking conviction under a French law against the public denunciation of a dead person.
The fan clubs are asking for one euro each in symbolic damages.
A court in the French city of Orleans held a hearing Thursday. A lawyer represented Robson and Safechuck, who in the documentary described years of alleged sexual abuse when they were boys and teens.
Jackson’s estate denies the allegations and sent a letter supporting the lawsuit.
