The judge presiding over the FTX Group bankruptcy case declined to appoint a different legal team to handle the Chapter 11 lawsuit for the insolvent crypto exchange; deciding that last-minute criticism of the attorneys were just “rumors”. The ruling, which was handed down by Judge John T. Dorsey on Friday morning, was made in spite of the recent controversy around the possibility that the high-powered law firm had potential conflicts of interest with regard to the case.
During the hearing in Wilmington, Delaware, Dorsey was quoted as saying:
There is no evidence of any actual conflict here. The document is certainly not something I’d allow to be submitted into the evidence in any event.
