The works of S. J. are simply a disgrace, since he does not use scientific methods. However, if he is so well known it is because TV channels provide him with a forum without checking the value of his films. (That unfortunately is also the case in the media for other topics than archaeology.) I am also very sorry for the sincere colleagues who accepted to be interviewed by S. J. with geniune belief to balance his biased presentation of archaeological finds. Anyway, S. J. makes money on the expense of science and, therefore, can afford to sue real researchers, who by no means possess the truth ex nihilo, but work hard to search for it, getting very low salaries in most of the world (and even in the rich USA sometimes). This trial, if it takes place besides the waste of energy it represents, should serve as a forum to have S. J. loose even more money than he claims he did in order to stop him in exploiting the credulity of a vast demanding but naive public. The money obtained should be used to make a documentary aimed at explaining how S. J. manipulates evidence. The sad fact is that real archaeology is exciting in many instances and he could do a real good job, as other producers do, by following the work of archaeologists in the field and in the labs. The public is more clever than one thinks and to educate him is anyway a good deed.
