The general public’s interest in Michael Jackson’s personal life was seemingly insatiable during the singer’s life, and now that he’s gone, the desire to pull back the curtain hasn’t really ebbed. Consequently, many media outlets are pushing for Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff to unseal Wade Robson’s molestation allegations against Jackson’s estate.

Given both sides have already publically said they would like to keep everything behind closed doors, most observers thought Judge Beckloff would cater to that request, but apparently, that’s not such a slam dunk. In fact, according to Fox News, it now seems like he may cater to the general public and make all but the most graphic and sensitive material open for anyone to read.

On the one hand, there’s something fitting about there being an openness to this case. Both Jackson and Robson made their livings in the public eye, and if Robson wants to make some money off the deceased singer’s estate, he should probably have to be open about what he’s claiming happened. Besides, he already called Jackson a pedophile on Today; so, it only makes sense the defense would also be on the record. On the other hand, however, there’s something strange about trying a case in the public eye when no one actually involved with the case wants it to be made public. After all, if Jackson’s Estate and Robson both want silence, why is the will of the public more important?
