This particular case appears to have been an easy one for the judge to decide.

The business associates had never reduced the alleged agreement with Jackson to writing and they never made an attempt to claim any shares in his business while he was alive. The lack of a written agreement, made it easy for the judge to dismiss their claims and to decide that the case was frivolous. The judge also ruled that they filed the case too late.
