Will Hurricane Dorian give Wright the extra 14 days he aims for?

Craig Wright – the self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin, as said that bad weather prevents him from handing over half of his Bitcoin wealth.

Originally instigated by Ira Kleiman – brother of the diseased Dave Kleiman back in 2018, the case accused, and condemned Wright. Kleiman has alleged Wright seized his late brother’s cryptocurrency holdings by transferring over 1.1 BTC (exceeding $11 billion at press time) through fraudulent contracts.  

On August 26th, U.S. Judge Beth Bloom ruled that Craig Wright must return Kleiman estate 50% of the Bitcoin he mined prior to 2014, including half of his intellectual property possessions. Wright lost the battle, having admitted false evidence during the case. 

On August 30th, Wright filed a new document to the Florida court. The new development seeks more time to challenge Judge Bloom’s decision, blaming Hurricane Dorian. Wright has claimed he needs more time to prepare his arguments.  

Dr. Wright does not concede that Magistrate Reinhardt had the power to enter the order that he did. However, the time frame that arguably could apply to addressing the legal validity of the purported order would be the 14-day time frame set forth in Rule 72 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

The new development document claims that with Hurricane Dorian due to hit Florida this week, “counsel for Dr. Wright have been spending significant time preparing for the hurricane which has limited their ability to work on this matter. 

Whilst Wright’s answer had to be lodged due September 13th, he hopes to be given extra time to file his challenge.
