The judge ruled that CSW will pay my $ 60,000 expense within two weeks of the June 8 ruling.
More than two months later, he hasn’t paid a cent. Color surprised me. 🤷♂️ https://t.co/sIUDpPW8EW

The defamation lawsuit against Hodlonaut is one of a series of similar lawsuits that Wright filed against key crypto figures such as Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, early Bitcoin investor Roger Ver, and podcaster Peter McCormack.
Presented in the course of 2019, The trials sought to deny claims that Wright lied about being the true creator of Bitcoin. None of these attempts were successful and Wright dropped several.
In addition to several defamation lawsuits, Wright is at the center of the long-running legal battle initiated by the heirs of his former partner Dave Kleiman. In this case, Wright must prove his access to 1.1 million bitcoins that he allegedly mined with Kleiman in the early days of Bitcoin.
Yesterday, Calvin Ayre, one of the most prominent supporters of the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, announced that he was funding a new documentary and a new book about Wright’s life.
