A New York bankruptcy judge has agreed to issue subpoenas against the founders of Three Arrows Capital as liquidators seek to wind down the collapsed crypto fund.
“The foreign representatives and their agents are authorized to serve subpoenas for the production of documents and testimony upon the founders, the investment managers and anyone else that might have information about Three Arrows’ affairs," U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn for the Southern District of New York wrote in a court document published on Tuesday.
The document names founders Su Zhu and Kyle Davies, as well as a number of other apparently related individuals and companies, including Starry Night Capital, the hedge fund’s non-fungible token (NFT) arm.
Liquidators for Three Arrows Capital have berated the founders for failing to cooperate with the bankruptcy probe, but last week confirmed they had seized $35.6 million from Singaporean bank accounts.
Lawyers for Zhu and Davies couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
