FTX News: Four media outlets Bloomberg, Dow Jones & Company, The New York Times, and The Financial Times appealed against a bankruptcy judge’s decision to permanently redact customer names of crypto exchange FTX. Meanwhile, debtors and creditors believe keeping customer names secret is critical for bankruptcy reorganization.
Media Outlets Appeal Against Customer Names Redaction
Earlier this month, Bankruptcy Judge John Dorsey ruled that FTX can keep its individual customers’ names secret as it could expose them to identity theft and other scams. Typically, bankrupt companies are required to disclose their creditors and debt amounts they hold, including individual customers, but the US bankruptcy law contains sections preventing details on the basis of risk of identity theft or other injuries.
FTX debtors and creditors argued customers of crypto lender Celsius Network faced scams and identity theft after its customers’ names were revealed.
On Friday, the media outlets filed a notice of appeal in the Delaware Bankruptcy Court to appeal Judge John Dorsey’s ruling to permanently redact FTX customer names from the bankruptcy case. Attorneys for Bloomberg and other media outlets argue FTX bankruptcy is not entitled to disclosure requirements exception.
This is the second time media outlets have asked the court to reveal details of crypto exchange FTX’s 9 million customers and creditors.
