According to a lawyer representing decreased computer scientist and early Bitcoin developer David Kleiman, Craig Wright has not submitted the court-ordered list of his old Bitcoin wallet addresses.
The case between Kleiman and Wright was brought by the estate of the former last February. It alleges that Wright appropriated the inheritance of members of the late computer scientist’s family.
As part of proceedings, Wright was ordered to produce a list of all the wallets he had under his control pre-2014 no later than June 21. According to lawyers representing the estate of Kleiman, he has failed to do so:
Craig Wright hasn’t complied with the court’s order to list his bitcoin as of 12/31/13. He remains under an order to show cause why J. Reinhart shouldn’t issue sanctions under R.37 & order him to appear before J. Bloom to explain why he shouldn’t be held in contempt. @KyleWRoche

As stated by Vel Freedman, part of the legal team representing Kleiman’s estate, Wright may be held in contempt of the court for his failure to produce the necessary information.
Naturally, some of the Bitcoin space is having a field day on the news — not least of all host of the What Bitcoin Did Podcast, Peter McCormack, who is being sued by Wright.
On advice of my lawyers, I can only say limited things about my lawsuit, as such:
1. Craig Wright is not Satoshi
2. Craig Wright is a fraud
3. Craig Wright is a moron
4. Craig Wright is a liar
5. Calvin Ayre is a berk
6. Calvin Ayre’s little bum beard is creepy

Naturally, any news that impacts negatively upon Wright, like today’s regarding Wright’s pre-2014 wallets, is greeted with glee from the podcaster and passionate Bitcoin advocate:
Craig Wright has NOT complied with the court’s order. This is direct from the lawyers representing Kleiman. https://t.co/mnR4aZR7EY

BeInCrypto reached out to McCormack for exclusive comment on the news out of the Kleiman legal camp. He responded by stating:
“Craig Wright is a lying moron and he [sic.] web of bullshit is catching up with him.”
BeInCrypto will bring you more on both the Kleiman case, as well as the legal spat between McCormack and Wright, as it develops.
What do you think? Will Craig Wright manage to produce records of his pre-2014 Bitcoin wallet? Does anybody care about his so-called certificate from the Colombian government validating that he is Satoshi Nakamoto? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
