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.
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.
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.
Per Stephen Palley, a lawyer that has taken a liking to comment on crypto cases noted,
calling witnesses at a contempt hearing to explain why didn’t comply with an order you were already ordered to comply with instead of providing their testimony to object to what you were previously ordered to do is 5 dimensional chess only if the 5th dimension is really dumb.

If you know how to do a cross examination you don’t mind an argumentative witness and can use it to your advantage.

Kleiman Estate to Provide a Witness and Electronic Gadgets
The Kleiman Estate is also set to provide an expert witness in this hearing. According to another court document, the plaintiffs have called Matthew J. Edman to testify. He is set to give a testimony on matters like applied cryptography, Shamir’s Secret Sharing Scheme, digital forensics, and crypto. On top of this, he would testify on the documents that Wright submitted in this case.
Additionally, the Kleiman Estate will provide some electronic devices associated with the case. These include a video camera, a laptop, a keyboard, a cell phone, and four tablets for the Livenote platform.
This news comes after Steve Shadders posted a blog post dubbed “On the Satoshiness of Dr Craig S Wright.” He gave details of his time while working with Wright.
“I have seen so much evidence that #craigissatoshi that it is a no brainer to me — It is not something I believe it is something I know as an iron-clad and indisputable fact.”
