Kleiman’s representation had previously asked the court to request the documents as evidence and the court agreed. However, in the recent document, the inventor of Bitcoin SV claims that the documents requested by the opposing party are protected by the client/attorney privilege under Florida law.Because of the length of the request, furthermore, Wright’s representation alleges that delivering the documents would involve an enormous effort. Wright’s defense would have to contact more than 17 foreign companies and at least 67 lawyers and 81 individual parties. It is even alleged that delivering the requested documents would make Wright violate Australian law. Under this legislation, Wright still has a link to the company it founded in Australia and is prohibited from issuing documents related to this entity even after its dissolution.
In addition, Wright’s attorneys argues that no valid reasons have been given for the requested documents to be released. Some documents requested, according to Wright, are not even related to the lawsuit and “are not proportionate to the demands of the case”:The eighty-one parties referenced above span the globe, and include parties located in the U.S., Australia, and the U.K., all of which are in different time zones and different judicial jurisdictions. Not only would Dr. Wright have to coordinate with each of those parties to provide them with the relevant documents for review, but he would have to bring them up to date on the relevant issue and the nuances of the Florida law on privilege.
