Kleiman died in 2013, not having a lot of money, after struggling with a bacterial infection. His brother Ira Kleiman argues that Wright has prepared a conspiracy to “take over Bitcoin Dave and his rights to certain intellectual property”, according to legal documents filed in February of last year. The family of Kleiman has filed a lawsuit against Wright with the requirement to pay approximately 1.1 million BTC ($3.9 billion) or the fair market value of the coin and moral compensation in connection with the theft of intellectual property.

Despite the efforts of Craig Wright and his lawyers Rivero Mestre LLP, who tried to close the case at the beginning of this year, noting that Kleymenov no concrete evidence, and there are only “assumptions and contradictory statements on the basis of rumor.”, to close the case failed.

In its decision published on December 27, a judge of the district of Florida, Beth bloom, granted the petition of Wright’s rejection of the claims referred to in paragraphs III and IV, however, Wright will have to answer to paragraphs I, II, V-IX of the charges now changed to the claim, until January 10, 2019.

Wright also is accused of “multiple fraudulent misrepresentations presented to the family of Kleiman associated with the property of David on assets”. Judge bloom in his explanation noted that the circuit court of appeals has not decided as to whether Bitcoins are “money”, but stressed that the court takes very seriously the allegations provided to the victims.

Court documents claim that given I, II, V-IX points, which is still in force, Wright has not met its promises with respect to Kleiman, and so the “variance of insufficient reason the charges are not valid”.
