The Kleiman estate is filing a motion for sanctions against Craig Wright for claiming that a list of BTC addresses he provided the Court were fake. The Kleiman also claimed that Craig Wright provided a false notice to the Court about the mysterious bonded courier who Wright claimed would show up in January with the keys to Satoshi Nakamoto‘s 1.1 million Bitcoin. Plaintiffs are also asking for a ten-day extension to get on top of depositions conducted over the last few weeks.
The plaintiffs intend to file a sanctions motion based on defendant’s conduct in these proceedings.
The Kleiman estate intends to file a sanctions motion based on the defendant’s conduct in these proceedings. The Kleiman estate clarified in the motion filed that this will not be limited to the defendant’s provision of a false notice and false list of bitcoin addresses in response to this Court’s order. In the motion filed by the Kleiman estate, the plaintiffs asked for a ten-day extension to get on top of the 13 depositions conducted over the last couple of weeks to prove their case.
The trial is set to begin in July.
The Kleiman estate trial is expected to begin on July 6 and that the lawyers on both sides have confirmed they were not planning to file any motions that could delay the trial. Ira Kleiman, brother of Craig Wright’s deceased partner David Kleiman, brought the lawsuit against the Kleiman estate for the share of David in the firm that was not handed it to him.
The lawsuit aims to take on Craig Wright for a share of the billions of dollars worth of Bitcoin that Wright and Kleiman allegedly mined. Earlier, Craig Wright claimed that he had no longer access to the BTC, which was held in the Tulip Trust and that a bonded courier would show up in January 2020 that would provide the access. And in January this year, he submitted the list of bitcoin addresses to the Court.
