Peter McCormack, the host of What Bitcoin Did, was one among the people sued by Craig Wright for “harassment and libel”. Wright’s legal attack began with Hodlonaut, a prominent Twitter personality and moved on to others in the crypto community. However, McCormack has received an update of the legal notice for this.
“The following is the latest letter from his solicitors of Craig Wright. Based on the copyright news yesterday, it is very clear their game plan. I have until Friday to make a decision. Not contesting this is an option but in no way will I read a statement in court as they want.”
The letter received stated:
“You did not acknowledge service, or serve any defence or admission, by Thursday’s deadline (16 May 2019). Our client is therefore entitled to apply under Part 12 of the CPR to request that an order for judgment in default be entered against you. In the event that he obatins such an order, our client will be entitled to apply to the court for (a) an assessment of the damages that you must pay to him, (b) an injunction, (c) an order permitting a statement to be read in open court.”
In addition, the letter also outlined that libel litigation would not be straightforward since McCormack does not have lawyers acting for him. Moreover, the letter added that “our client does not want you to be put under unnecessary pressure”.
McCormack replied to one of the comments:
“I might not contest it. Not sure I want to give him the satisfaction.”
Ran NeuNer, the host of CNBC’s Crypto Trader, commented:
“Bro, you came out guns blazing saying you would fight this until the end! You rallied all of Crypto twitter to get behind you in this. Now you considering not contesting it? Is this what they teach you in Bedford.”
