Bitfinex Claims Victory as Supreme Court Gives Nod to Exchange & Tether

By CCN: The New York Supreme Court has ruled that the scope of the Attorney General’s investigation into Bitfinex and Tether Limited is too broad and needs a time limit.

BITFINEX: SUPREME COURT RULING A “VICTORY”

The embattled exchange called the ruling a “victory” and insinuates that the case will end up going nowhere. Bitfinex has already admitted that as much as $850 million evaporated from its coffers while Tether Limited has publicly confessed to only partially backing the world’s oldest stablecoin.

Under the order, Tether and Bitfinex can continue business as usual, but Tether Limited may not make any loans to Bitfinex. Moreover, while the injunction has been modified, Bitfinex and Tether are called on to cooperate with the investigation to the best of their ability.

“Having now heard both sides of the story, the Court grants Respondents’ motion in part and denies it in part for the reasons set forth on the record at a hearing on May 6, 2019 and as summarized herein. In a nutshell, the Court finds that Petitioner is entitled to the Order requiring Respondent to promptly produce evidence, but that the preliminary injunction contained in the Order should be modified.”
