No. Marty isn't the one dragging it out for years - its the church! This is straight from their playbook. Marty had some idea of what kind of defense the church would mount, and all their delay tactics, etc.That combination doesn't hold water. If Marty/Monique drop the case, that automatically prevents Marty from dragging it out "for years or even decades".
Did we read the same article? This went on for years, with long periods of no activity, and no communication. So, yeah, petered out.What do you mean by "kinda petered out"? Was Monique winning or losing the case at the point when they dropped the case?
Why is this inconceivable? That a person would just walk away from a lawsuit that is likely to many, many years to fight, with no guarantee of victory. Not too many are up for that challenge. Would you? I wouldn't. Its very easy for us non-litigants, to tell Marty & Monique want to do. Its very different to live it.It is not possible for no.4 to be the end of the story. If that occurs, then we are back at square one having to choose between the 3 "end of story options":
We have no idea where Marty and Monique got their 100k down payment on their house. This is no reason to automatically assume a shadowy, secret deal with Scn, especially without evidence. People get their down payment money from many sources, such as: savings, inheritance, gifts, stocks and investments, liquidating assets, pensions, personal loans, to name a few. Jeffrey has admitted, after investigating M & M, that no evidence of such a secret deal could be found. If anyone has a reason to find such evidence - its Jeffrey.Seeing the house they purchased, we know 1&2 did not happen. That kinda narrows it down
