Investors Elect To Drop Lawsuit Against Terra And Do Kwon
In a recent court filing, Patterson was representing investors “similarly situated” to himself. Patterson incurred losses due to his investment in TerraUSD before the Terra ecosystem collapsed in May 2022.

“Lead Plaintiff Michael Tobias and named plaintiff Nick Patterson (together, “Plaintiffs”), hereby voluntarily dismiss this case, in its entirety, without prejudice, only against defendants Terraform Labs, Pte. Ltd., and Do Kwon.”
The lawsuit’s dismissal came without any reasons provided.
