On Tuesday, November 23, the closing arguments for both sides of the Kleiman v. Wright trial finished and now ten jurors will decide the fate of the billion-dollar bitcoin lawsuit. While Craig Wright claims he’s Satoshi Nakamoto, he also insists the now-deceased Dave Kleiman did not help with the creation of Bitcoin. The plaintiffs are hoping to win an incredibly large sum of money and intellectual property (IP) estimated to be worth billions of dollars.
Kleiman v. Wright Trial Nears the End
The infamous Kleiman v. Wright trial is nearing its end and the cryptocurrency community is about to witness the long-awaited decision stemming from a jury in Miami, Florida. The plaintiffs’ attorney representing the Kleiman estate, Vel Freedman, tweeted about the case when the closing arguments were finished and the jury left to make a decision. “Kleiman v Wright update: Case submitted to the jury. Closings done. Now we wait,” Freedman explained on Tuesday afternoon (EST).
Freedman further thanked some of the colleagues that helped his law firm with the case. Following the closing arguments, it is now up to the ten jurors to decide. The jurors did not come to a conclusion on Tuesday and the court jurors will reconvene again on Monday. Coingeek’s Kurt Wuckert Jr. tweeted about the case and complemented Freedman after the closing arguments.
“Vel Freedman had a very strong finish for Kleiman today,” Wuckert Jr. said. “Rivero accidentally spilled his water on his notes and struggled with technical difficulties. He caught his stride, and made his points, but Freedman had a very direct and effective finish. Jury in deliberation now.”
