Brother John W. (Jack) Welch is the Chairman of Book of Mormon Central. He's also a lawyer, so he'd be the natural one to make this explanation. But there are plenty of other lawyers who promote M2C.
Come to think of it, Book of Mormon Central is only one part of the citation cartel. The entire cartel is going to need a platoon of lawyers to explain to the prophets how they were wrong.
Here's how I envision that happening.
|"But you were all ignorant speculators who misled the Church,"
the lawyer insists.
I could only fit a few of the prophets who have taught the New York Cumorah, but there's no need to show all of them. They have consistently and persistently taught that Cumorah is in New York. No prophet has disagreed or even questioned their teaching.
Only the M2C intellectuals have.
I wouldn't want to be the lawyer who has to try to persuade the prophets they were wrong.
Especially since the M2C case is based on illusory correspondences and strained interpretations of the text.
I don't think these judges will rule in favor of Book of Mormon Central, but apparently a lot of employees at BYU/CES/COB do. The citation cartel is so confident that they censor any contrary views, especially the views of those who believe the prophets.
Book of Mormon Central will also answer to the thousands of youth in the Church whom they have taught to disbelieve the prophets, but that crowd is much, much too large to depict on the bench.

This isn't even a full list of the citation cartel. You can see more of them here:
The M2C lawyer is going to be quite busy, no doubt.
