By CCN.com: An expert witness has filed an affidavit in the Kleiman v. Wright case, which alleges that Craig Wright stole billions of dollars worth of bitcoins from Dave Kleiman either before or after he passed away. The Kleiman estate is seeking damages in the neighborhood of $10 billion. Wright is defending the case with tenacity and recently submitted a provably fake e-mail as evidence.
One thing for sure: The e-mail was fake
In response to this e-mail’s filing and Wright’s subsequent motion that it be stricken from evidence, an expert witness has filed an affidavit on behalf of the plaintiffs.
Dr. Matthew J. Edman, a cybersecurity researcher who previously helped the FBI acquire Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht’s Bitcoin stash, testifies that the e-mail was certifiably fake.
Counsel for Plaintiff also provided me with the file DEF_00030487.mht, which appears to be a copy of an email sent from the Defendant to himself and that I understand was produced by the Defendant in discovery. The content of the email is identical to the content of ECF No. [144-1], including the PGP signature. The email was sent on April 16, 2014 at 10:22 PM UTC6 according to the date in the email’s header. If this time is adjusted to UTC+10, it shows that the Defendant sent this email to himself on April 17, 2014, at approximately 8:22 AM, i.e., about two minutes before ECF No. [144-1] was created and six minutes before it was last modified.
