Craig Wright says he cannot pay Kleiman estate! Craig Wright says he cannot pay Kleiman estate the $4.5 billion settlement that was levied against him by the courts.
Craig Wright, the self proclaimed Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, informed the plaintiff that he couldn’t pay the billions owed – this was revealed in the latest court documents.
The plaintiff had stopped active litigation and had been focused on settlement, joining Wright’s request to extend the deadline into late October. Wright allegedly broke the agreement:
“On October 30, without any advance notice, Plaintiffs were informed Craig could no longer finance the settlement and was ‘breaking’ the non-binding settlement agreement.”
The plaintiff had been operating under the assumption that Wright could cover the costs of the settlement, based on his claims. Because of the latest revelation, it’s clear that he wasn’t telling the truth during the negotiations between the defendant and the plaintiff.
Therefore, because Wright broke the settlement agreement, the plaintiffs resumed preparing for a trial.
The plaintiffs reached out to James Wilson, the Chief Financial Officer of Wright’s companies in 2012 and 2013, “during which Dave was alive and Craig alleges he sold Dave interest in his companies in exchange for a fortune of Bitcoin.”
Wilson has informed the plaintiffs counsel that he will be in the United States and will be available for testimony on November 8th. The defense team for Wright has objected to the date and has not consented to the deposition on that day.
The plaintiff of the document explains:
“Under the Local Rules of this District, parties must have 7-days notice for a deposition in Florida, but 14-days notice for an out of state deposition.”
The plaintiffs have requested that the defendant, Wright, and Wilson be given permission to attend the meeting via video conference – this being one of the ways to have the deposition completed in under 14 days.
Therefore, the Plaintiffs “respectfully request that the Court allow them to depose Mr. Wilson on November 8, 2019 in Washington D.C. on condition they provide Defense counsel with the ability to attend the deposition via video link,” the document reads.
