The infamous Bitcoin title case between Craig Wright and Ira Kleiman, daughter of deceased David Kleiman, takes yet another ugly turn, as the former tried to mislead the court once again. Recently, the self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator claimed that the “Bonded Courier,” who was supposed to provide Wright the private keys for the earliest Bitcoins owned by Satoshi Nakamoto, was, in fact, an attorney. Therefore, according to the Bitcoin SV chief, the information is protected under attorney-client privilege.
Taking a dig at Craig Wright, popular crypto influencer Samson Mow tweeted that the Bonded Courier was not only an attorney but also a priest.
Another plot twist: the “Bonded Courier” was not only an attorney, but also a PRIEST. So #Faketoshi also has priest–penitent privilege to protect himself. https://t.co/Dz0kEX0oIB

The billion-dollar lawsuit was filed by Ira, David Kleiman’s daughter, the former partner of Craig Wright, accusing that Wright manipulated and tampered her father’s documents to gain access to Bitcoins worth billions allegedly belonging to David Kleiman. The lawsuit has seen several twists and turns and has shown the dark side of Craig Wright on more than one occasion.
Following his claim of being Satoshi Nakamoto, a big section of the crypto industry debunked the claim, accusing Craig Wright to be a fraud. He ran into serious tussles with major crypto personalities like Binance Chief Changpeng Zhao, Computer Scientist John McAfee, IOHK CEO Charles Hoskinson, etc. Nonetheless, Craig Wright continues to stand firm on his claims, even though most of the proofs submitted by his side are either false or insufficient.
