The court of the Southern District of Florida State refused to reject the claim to nChain Chief Researcher Craig Wright, who was accused of embezzling 300,000 bitcoins.
Initially in February, Ira Kleiman, the brother of forensic computer investigator and writer Dave Kleiman, accused Craig Wright of misappropriating 1.1 million bitcoins. After the death of Dave Kleiman in 2013, Wright volunteered to help the relatives of his former business partner to dispose of the remaining bitcoins.
According to the lawsuit, Wright fulfilled the terms of the agreement, but did not return the cryptocurrency. Self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto is also accused of "creating a scheme for the purpose of assigning Bitcoins and intellectual property rights to Dave Kleiman associated with Bitcoin technology."
The amended lawsuit states that Craig Wright has already converted about 300,000 bitcoins and transferred them to the management of several international trusts without the consent of Kleiman’s relatives.
Until January 10, Wright must give an answer to the charges.
