Kleiman v Wright Update #1

  1. Wright failed to produce the addresses and comply with the order; and
  2. Wright willfully failed to comply with the order.
  1. Wright failed to produce the addresses; and
  2. Wright willfully failed to produce the addresses. Note that contempt can also be found by Wright’s willfully failing to provide a timely explanation why compliance with the discovery order was impossible.

[a]t the very least, Reinhart believes Wright has for months willfully avoided contacting the trustees of the “blind trust” to escape his discovery obligations.

This is precisely what Reinhart zeroed in on when questioning Wright. Wright’s simple failure to inform the court of the impossibility of accessing the bitcoin addresses until this late stage is enough for the court to hold him in contempt. Wright willfully refused to provide answers to these questions at multiple occasions and wasted the court’s time for months.
