Craig Wright calls witnesses in his hearing

Craig Wright, a bitcoin SV advocate, and the self-declared Satoshi Nakamoto will be appearing in court later on today. He is set to show up at a court in West Palm Beach, Florida for an evidentiary hearing. Wright will reportedly call three expert witnesses to the stand during this hearing. The recently filed documents in the Kleiman v. Wright lawsuit unveiled this information.

According to the court document, this court session will be at the Paul G. Rogers Federal Building. Wright’s legal team would invite Brett Roberson, Kevin Madura, and Steve Shadders to testify.

Brett Roberson has vast knowledge in digital forensics and PGP signatures. Wright aims to call him on the stand to share insights in his area of expertise.

Kevin Madura is an expert in cryptography, crypto, and the blockchain. He is set to offer an expert testimony based on his knowledge.

Steve Shadders is the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of nChain. He is poised to testify as a fact witness.

Apart from these three men, Wright will also testify as a fact witness.

Calling Witnesses is a Puzzling Move

This news comes after the Kleiman attorney revealed that Wright had failed to follow the court’s order to list his BTC addresses before 2013.
