MADISON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that a teenager who accused a billionaire heir to the SC Johnson Family fortune of sexually abusing her for years can't testify at his trial unless she agrees to release her medical records. That reverses a decision the high court issued a year ago.

Last summer the court ruled the girl could testify against 58-year-old Samuel Curtis Johnson, the son of the late SC Johnson chairman Sam Johnson. On Wednesday the court issued an order clarifying that the ruling amounted to a deadlock. That means a lower court decision barring the girl from testifying until she releases her medical records stands.

The girl has refused to release the records.
