A federal judge in Manhattan said Beat It to most counts in a $300 million suit filed against Michael Jackson’s estate, Jackson’s supposed ex-manager, and Anshutz Entertainment Group over promotional rights to the comeback tour the King of Pop was planning prior to his death last summer.

The plaintiff, AllGood Entertainment, Inc., alleged in a May 2009 complaint (filed a month before Jackson died) that Jackson, though his purported manager, Frank Dileo, had signed a deal to perform either a solo concert tour or a Jackson Family reunion concert to be promoted by AllGood. But months after striking its deal with Dileo, AllGood alleged, AllGood found out that Jackson had, in fact, agreed to work with AEG on the “This Is It” series of shows scheduled to begin in London in the fall of 2009. Represented by Meyerowitz Jekielek, AllGood claimed breach of contract, fraud, and tortious interference against Jackson, Dileo and AEG.
