DIdn't know that. But I would think Rossi would chose people he could trust, and it wouldn't surprise me that they link to his past. Regarding the lawsuit, I followed some of Abd-Lomax's reporting and a few other things, but not the depositions themselves. I intend to read them in the near future, but frankly I don't think there will be any revelations that would dissuade me from belief. But we'll see.
I agree, if you are on board with Rossi now, I can't think of anything short of he himself announcing he was a fraud that would change your belief. Were I you, I would not bother reading anything except JONP.
