Self-proclaimed Satoshi Craig Wright is being sued by the Kleiman family on accusations that Wright defrauded and stole over $11 billion worth of BTC and hard drives from the now deceased Dave Kleiman, a noted computer forensics expert who’s suspected by some to be Satoshi Nakamoto.
Wright and Kleiman were business partners until Kleiman died in 2013.
The lawsuit that’s unfolding in Florida courts has been filled with bizarre theories, misdirections, forgeries, and mistruths which were often presented by the defendant, Dr. Wright.
Among the bizarre things brought forth by Wright is Document 187
, “Dr. Craig Wright’s Motion For Protective Order.”
According to Wright, some of the evidence that supports he is Satoshi and that the $11 billion worth of bitcoins is his own, includes sensitive information about his ties to criminals and his involvement in their apprehension and incarceration.
Therefore, Document 187
has been redacted so that the criminals included in the document would not learn of Wright’s involvement with their arrests and seek repercussions against him.
However, unfortunately for Wright, whoever was redacting the document failed to to blackout one of the corresponding footnotes that identifies the criminal kingpin in question, Paul Le Roux.

As seen in the footnote above, a partial URL is visible that leads to a Daily Mail
article that calls Le Roux a:“Real-life Bond villain behind a cocaine and gun empire spanning four continents who’s now turned super-snitch”
Also, the unredacted footnote clearly contains a link to Paul Le Roux’s Wikipedia page
, indicating that Le Roux may very well be one of the criminals that Wright is afraid of repercussions from.
