Judge Rejected Class Certification In Mt Gox fraud Case Of $400 Million


Former Mt. Gox CEO, Mark Karpeles got a win in a small move in a case of $400 Million fraud lawsuit certification.

In the case of Mt.Gox there was an appeal for class certificate from clients of the defunct Japanese Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox

Mt.gox exchange was hacked in 2014 and forced into bankruptcy.

Gary Feinerman, honorable judge in this case of Mt.gox, made a declaration in district court Illinois on 22 June, it will need 30,000 mini trials to find out otherwise.

This declaration by the judge was just like a victory for the CEO of  Mt. Gox, CEO Mark Karpeles.

Mark Karpeles requested that a compensation plan is better instead of fighting with laws and rules. 

According to the judge,the whole case is just like defamation for Mark Karpeles. According to the law 360 this case of fraud against Mt.gox is wrong. It is a part of an incident where many types of loss happened not only for other people but also for the exchange.

Greene created his account on mt.gox in 2012. And as all of us know very well that Mt.gox became a victim of hackers and that turned into a big loss for the exchange and their customers.

But here Greene as a customer is claiming that it is the fault of Mt.gox exchange because they assured their customers with their privacy and security to use their services. 

In a deposition in June by Greene, she found that she didn’t remember about the terms and conditions of Mt.gox exchange.

But also there were numbers of people who created Their accounts at Mt.gox. The number of users was around 30,000. So the Court said that it is a situation where we need to talk with 30,000 people regarding this case and then we will come to the point where we can decide wrong or right.

Since it was very complicated for the Court for 30,000 mini trials, they said that it was better to give compensation instead of litigation.
