USA v. Virgil Griffith: What We Know (and Don’t) in the Bombshell Crypto Sanctions Case
Prosecutors appear to have a strong case against Virgil Griffith, the ethereum developer charged with conspiring to aid North Korea, legal experts say.
Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith is likely headed to trial on charges of violating international sanctions, after a Tuesday hearing where a federal judge clarified what's being argued.
Attorneys for Virgil Griffith want the U.S. government to specify the charges he’s facing rather than a broad claim that he violated U.S. sanctions.
The federal judge also denied the Ethereum developer’s request for more details about the charges against him.
The motion, filed by Brian Klein, claims the indictment of Griffith doesn't "specify any alleged overt facts," and contains no actual allegation of fact.
Brian Klein has spent the last few years representing crypto OGs against the government and each other. His latest high-profile project is to keep Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith out of jail.
