A trial involving cryptocurrency entrepreneur Craig Wright and the estate of his former business partner has again been rescheduled, this time for Nov. 1.
- In an order signed late last month, Judge Beth Bloom of the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Florida granted a joint motion by Wright and plaintiff Ira Kleiman to move the date.
- The judge also moved the calendar call to Sept. 14 and extended the due date for demonstrative and summary exhibits to Aug. 31, as the parties had requested.
- The status of the case will be discussed in a conference on Tuesday, according to the order.
- In September of last year, Wright attempted to prevent the case from going to a full trial by filing a motion seeking summary judgment. The motion was summarily denied by Judge Bloom.
- Since then, the trial date has been moved several times.
- Kleiman brought the case on behalf of the estate of his late brother David, who had worked with Wright during bitcoin's early days.
- Wright is being sued for half of his alleged fortune of 1.1 million bitcoin (approximately $65.2 billion at today's prices) he claims the two mined together, as well as intellectual property.
