It's All Good For Michael Jackson

8/19/2010 8:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson would be smiling today ... if circumstances were different, of course, because a judge just dismissed a $300 million lawsuit that had been filed against him.

A federal judge in New York just dismissed a lawsuit filed by AllGood Entertainment, claiming Michael had agreed through an agent to perform several Jackson family reunion concerts in Indiana before going on the road with any other show.

AllGood claimed ... by agreeing to do the London concerts, Jackson breached his agreement with AllGood.

The federal judge ruled today ... Jackson's agent -- Frank Dileo -- merely struck the deal with AllGood in principle, that couldn't become binding without the sign-offs of MJ and his brothers.  The judge also said the deal was just too sketchy to be enforceable.

The case had been partially dismissed last month.  Now it's officially history.

Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for the Michael Jackson Estate, tells TMZ, "This case never had any merit and the claim was frivolous from day one."

UPDATE: A rep for AllGood tells us, "While we respect Judge Baer’s ruling, we respectfully disagree with his erroneous factual conclusions."

The rep adds, "We are looking into all of the remedies available to us under the law."

Michael would have been happier if Katherine had taken action sooner:

Is that you the real elizabeth vale? Where have you been.

Kind of nice to see another lawsuit dismissed. Things have turned around. So many things that went wrong for Michael finally headed in the right direction.

Della Yes this is the real elizabeth vitale. How are you? I now see we have logins so a good change has come to TMZ. Yes good to read in the right direction. If everything went in the right direction we may all see Michael surface and smiling again. Wouldn't that be a pleasant joy?
