Craig Wright Uses Falsified Docs to Prove Innocence in Kleiman Case: Report

Self-proclaimed Bitcoin (BTC) creator Craig Wright has allegedly provided fabricated court documents to prove a trust deed with his plaintiffs, as seen from documents revealed by trial lawyer Stephen Palley on Twitter on July 3.

According to Palley, the self-styled Satoshi Nakamoto has failed to prove his case by presenting court documents that Palley alleges to be fake, as they contain multiple chronological discrepancies.

Among the exhibits filed with the District Court for the Florida Southern District on July 3, there is a document submitted as proof of cooperation between Wright and the now-deceased David Kleiman, whose lawyers filed the case against Wright in February 2018. Kleiman’s lawyers accuse Wright of stealing hundreds of thousands of Bitcoin — at press time valued at over $5 billion — after Kleiman’s death in April 2013.

While the presented deed of trust document is ostensibly dated Oct. 23, 2012, the metadata of the file indicates that the document was actually created after the death of Kleiman, as Palley found. The trust document apparently uses a 2015 copyright notice related to Calibri, the Microsoft Word font, indicating that the document could not be from earlier.

Following the apparent accusation of Wright for forging the court documents, Palley wrote:

“I mean it makes sense that the inventor of bitcoin can time travel.  Your honor.”

In late June, Wright declared that he cannot comply with a court order to provide a list of all his early bitcoin addresses, claiming that he gave a key piece of information regarding the funds and wallets to Kleiman before his death.

    Clearly a lie yet people seem shy of calling craig wright due to him issuing lawsuits. I have researched and my personal conclusion is “What a crock of shit” . Any early time stamped digital notes, emails or other proof? Nothing conclusive yet many things seem fabricated to the core. Erm im calling bullshit so prove something conclusive or give the dead man his Authoridge Rights and pay back what you stole.

    Fake news Alert

     

    Apparently the document was scanned and transformed into a PDF file in 2015, nothing special

    of course it will show the year ‘2015’ and of course the pdf software will pick up the updated CALIBRI font …if the scan and transfer was done in 2015.

    we shouldn’t forget there is a paper contract …and this one will pass under the court expert.

      Anything can be faked now a days. Most journalism lacks integrity. And no a scanned document is not going to pick up a font. A scanned document is a scanned document. Scanned documents don’t read fonts or interpret text. And rewrite out the document. A scanned document is nothing different than a photo. Get real. Who paid you. Just another lie. It’s so obvious wright has fucked over his deceased friends. Just another example of greed and power.

    I agree with Omnisensiacal…. Most these Crypto sites, are very bias one way or another. They’re all just repeating the same story over and over again… written by different wannabe journalist who have generally done very little if no investigations at all in to the story they are supposedly writing about. ( more like copying) Have we all agreed that Craig s Wright is actually the inventor of Bitcoin… and therefore worked under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto?

    All these ‘crypto’ news sites are the same. Tired bullshit paid for by BTC toxic maximalist shills and backed by the other ‘crypto’ currencies. The truth is that this is a dead market. Dr. Wright is the inventor of Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a network protocol, and just like the internet, we only want and need one, and it must scale globally to do the task of settling the world’s financial activity. Only BSV does this, with 2Gb blocks coming in August and uncapped block-sizes in 2020. All the other protocols go to zero. This kind of ‘journalism’ is thankfully on its last legs and the iIdiots who write this kind of nonsense without doing their research properly will go bankrupt. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Craig Wright and his bag holders are going to eventually regret having anything to do with Bitcoin (SV). The rest of us have already seen the outcome and it revolves around Bitcoin.

    Wow, 3 SV shrills in a row. When you scan a document it becomes a bitmap and forgets everything about the fonts. Even if using OCR it wouldn’t know the font used.

    To be fair, I am mostly a btc guy (it’s fine if you don’t believe me), and I may be one of the few people to try and reproduce the metadata extraction. I ran the following command “pdftops gov.uscourts.flsd.521536.237.9.pdf” and the only font I could find in the output postscript file was called “LiberationSans” . I did not find Calibri. My effort is not an exhaustive one and possibly other tools are better at finding it.
