$10 Billion Lawsuit Filed Against Craig Wright Over Stolen Bitcoin

Dave Kleiman’s estate just filed a claim against Craig Wright. The lawsuit was filed by Boies Schiller Flexner lawyers Devin "Velvel" Freedman (https://www.bsfllp.com/lawyers/velvel-devin-freedman.html) and Kyle Roche (https://www.bsfllp.com/lawyers/kyle-roche.html).
