One legal team looks to lead the three ongoing suits against IFinex alleging that illegal conduct involving iFinex's subsidiaries Tether and Bitfinex was behind Bitcoin's 2017 bull run. Per a Jan. 13 filing with the court of the Southern District of New York, the counsel for Eric Young, Adam Kurtz and David Crystal are asking to be deemed "Interim Lead Counsel" for a number of parties filing similar class-action suits.
Meaning of the new classification for the caseSuch a classification would make Young's counsel the flagship of a trio of class-action suits against iFinex that also includes Leibowitz et al v. iFinex - originally filed in October - and Laubus et al v. iFinex.
"Contains expert analyses and original statistical analyses that are not found in the Leibowitz Complaint. Further, Kirby and Radice possess extensive, specialized experience representing parties in data-intensive financial, commodities, and antitrust class actions." "Interim class counsel will be responsible for protecting the interests of the class at this stage. That can include representing the class through motions, conducting discovery, and eventually moving for class certification." Lerner reiterated the assertion in the recent filings that Kirby McInterney's experience both in this general area of law and particularly in assembling expert analysis for the allegations were working in favor of their spearheading the class action.
IFinex, for its part, has responded to the allegations with strong language.
