If Wade or James' cases reach trial, we'd see the most embarrassing cash grab disguised as a CSA case ever presented in court.

Most of Finaldi's own witnesses wound up becoming excellent witnesses FOR MJ during their depositions.

The depos proved disastrous for Finaldi's side.
Take Orietta Murdock, for instance. A prominent name throughout Wade & James' complaints with stories derived from 1990s tabloid media.

But in her sworn deposition, she ended up defending and humanizing MJ while denying most of the claims Finaldi alleged.
Murdock was asked to review a declaration re: NL5 lawsuit. She said the wording wasn't how she talks & went on to explain that most quotations and attributions (including in LAPD reports) were inaccurate depictions.

Murdock, like most Finaldi witnesses, only helped MJ's case.
To reiterate, Murdock (one of the intended star witnesses for Finaldi) dispelled decades of rumor and innuendo in her sworn 2017 deposition. She explained that whoever wrote her 94 declaration took a lot of liberties and flat-out denied all the damning remarks attributed to her.
Murdock is one of many examples of Finaldi chasing dead-end leads pulled from Gutierrez-type books and tabloid headlines of the 1990s.

Another example is a '80s chef deposed by Finaldi's team. He had nothing but good to say of MJ and felt the media created this false narrative.
