前MT. Gox门头沟首席执行官呼吁撤销欺诈指控

2020-1-9 15:55

现已倒闭的Mt. Gox前首席执行官马克•卡佩莱斯(Mark Karpeles)已向法院提起诉讼,试图驳回交易所倒闭的受害者对他提起的集体诉讼。


根据周三提交给伊利诺伊州地方法院的文件,卡佩莱斯要求立即做出判决,免除所有指控。

 

这起集体诉讼的主要原告格里高利·格林(Gregory Greene)于2014年起诉卡佩莱斯,当时卡佩莱斯在这家现已不存在的交易所所持有的股票损失惨重。他指控前首席执行官涉嫌“非法转换”、“疏忽”或“消费者欺诈”。


“Karpeles应该允许即决判决对他有利的三项指控Karpeles先生在手术第四修改投诉…即算我转换,数二世为过失,或计数II消费者欺诈——由于一系列的原因,”Karpeles律师最近提交的声明。


比特币猛犸象的末日


从2011年到2014年,卡佩莱斯担任比特币交易所的首席执行官,也是该交易所最大的股东。比特币曾是比特币交易领域的领头羊,但在2011年底的一次攻击中,比特币的受欢迎程度受到了打击,导致85万比特币被盗,当时价值4.5亿美元。这对该交易所的账簿和业务造成了重大影响,最终迫使它在2014年关闭了交易业务。

 

数百名债权人失去了他们的财产,许多人敲了法院的门,而其他人仍在等待法院指定的恢复者的退款。


值得注意的是,去年日本一家法院裁定卡佩莱斯犯有数据操纵罪,但宣告其贪污罪名不成立。


根据最近的文件,原告的要求是松散的,没有任何坚实的证据支持。


“格林没有证据支持非法强占的主张。


“……在过失指控方面,格林先生没有支持证据,根据该理论,他不能就纯粹的经济损害获得赔偿……在消费者欺诈指控方面,格林先生直接反驳了他对所谓欺诈或欺骗的指控,从而使他的指控不成立。”

 

Mark Karpeles, the former CEO of now-defunct Mt. Gox, has moved to court, attempting dismissal of a class-action suit filed against him by the victims of the collapsed exchange.

 

According to the documents filed on Wednesday at an Illinois district court, Karpeles is demanding for a summary judgment relieving him from all the charges.


Gregory Greene, the primary plaintiff of the class action suit, sued Karpeles in 2014 amid loss of his holdings stored at the now-defunct exchange. He alleged that the ex-CEO was involved in “conversion”, and “negligence” or “consumer fraud”.

 

“Mr. Karpeles should be granted summary judgment in his favor for each of the three counts alleged against Mr. Karpeles in the operative Fourth Amended Complaint…namely Count I for conversion, Count II for negligence, or Count II for Consumer Fraud — for a host of reasons,” the recent filing by attorneys of Karpeles stated.

 

The doom of a Bitcoin mammoth

 

Karpeles ran the Bitcoin exchange from 2011 to 2014 as its CEO and was also its largest shareholder. Once the leading exchange in terms of Bitcoin trades, its popularity took a hit amid an attack in late 2011, resulting in the theft of 850,000 Bitcoin, then worth 450 million. This created a major dent on the books and business of the exchange and finally forced it to shut its trading operations in 2014.


As hundreds of creditors lost their holdings, many knocked at the courts’ doors while others are still waiting for a refund from the court-appointed rehabilitator.

Notably, last year a Japanese court held Karpeles accountable for data manipulation but acquitted for embezzlement.

 

Per the recent filing, the plaintiff’s claims were loose and are not backed by any solid evidence.

 

“Mr. Greene has no evidence to support a claim for conversion,” the filing added.

 

“…for the negligence count, Mr. Greene has no supporting evidence and cannot recover under that theory for a purely economic injury…for the consumer fraud count, Mr. Greene directly contradicted the underlying allegations in his Complaint of the purported fraud or deception, thereby dooming his claim.”
