They have cited the incapability of locating addresses where the services could affect the defendants.

The Court has denied the request of the complainants of the OneCoin lawsuit. A month after the plaintiffs appealed for alternative service of their complaint on several defendants, the New York Southern District Court has dismissed the request.

Judge Valerie E. Caproni signed an order nixing the application on November 1. The Judge issued the order stating, “Because Plaintiffs have not shown that they have taken reasonable steps to attempt to serve these Defendants, the Court denies Plaintiffs’ motion without prejudice.”

The Judge also perceived that the plaintiffs did not show that the email they suggested to use for service is functional and currently in use. OneCoin’s website, matching the appeared to be non-functional. Although they were operational a year ago, they no longer appear functional and active, the Judge said.

In response to the denial, the plaintiffs have stated that they had not been able to determine any addresses where service would spontaneously be executed on the defendants.
