The U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Florida ‘issued‘ an order recently on 3rd May desiring self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto ‘Craig Wright’ to provide a list of his public Bitcoin [BTC] addresses.
This order is a part of an ongoing lawsuit filed against Wright by ‘David Kleiman’, that claims that Wright stole several thousands of Bitcoins. The stolen coins were priced over $5 Bln earlier in the month of Feb. last year, once Kleiman’s estate primarily sued Wright.
The order illustrates several plaintiffs’ requests. They asked the court to order Wright to provide a list of its public addresses of bitcoin he holds as of 31st Dec., 2013, make him identify all Bitcoin allegedly transferred to an anonymous trust earlier in 2011 and produce documents associated with the same trust.
Moreover, the plaintiffs additionally asked the court to order Wright to spot beneath oath the identity of the present and past trustees and beneficiaries of the trust. The last request is to “permit more deposition of Dr. Wright with reference to his ownership and management over bitcoins.”
The document also specifies that the court has reconsidered its order on Wright’s antecedently filed motion to seal data relating to his bitcoin holdings. Additionally to denying Wright’s motion relating to the list of bitcoin addresses, the order states:
“On or before 15th May, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. E.T., Dr. Wright shall produce all transactional records of the trust, including but not restricted to any records reflecting the transfer of bitcoin into the trust in or about 2011. The production shall be accompanied by a sworn declaration of authenticity.”
As ‘reported‘ earlier last year, the U.S. court has already rejected repeated requests from Wright to dismiss the Kleiman case.
