Craig Wright Allegedly Forged Correspondences in Kleiman Case

Craig Wright, the Australian computer scientist who claims to be the inventor of bitcoin, faced a fresh accusation emerging against him of having produced fabricated documents in court .
Jonathan Warren, software developer of bitcoin-like email system Bitmessage, testified before the Southern District of Florida court on July 24 as part of the Kleiman v. Wright case. The reason for his appearance was a series contracts and emails that were sent through the Bitmessage platform.

The lawsuit claims that Wright schemed to and the intellectual property rights associated with cryptocurrency ‎technology. In addition, he forged and backdated a series of contracts that ‎purported to transfer Dave’s assets to his companies.
While the presented deed of trust document is ostensibly dated October 2012, and Wright’s correspondences were allegedly sent on November 6 and 13, 2012, Bitmessage owner said that the communications protocol wasn’t available before November 19. This chronological discrepancy, in a way, establishes the fact that Wright has likely forged these messages and provided fabricated court documents to prove a trust deed with his plaintiffs.
An excerpt from Warren’s testimony reads:
Judge: Prior to November 19, 2012, did you ever 9 share the Bitmessage software or source code with 10 anyone?
Warren: No.
Judge: Were there ever any beta testers of the 13 Bitmessage software prior to its release on November 14 19, 2012?
Warren: No.
Judge: Prior to November 19, 2012, where was the 17 Bitmessage source code software located?
Warren: It was located on my personal computer at 19 home and also my work computer.
 Judge: Would it have been possible for anyone 21 besides you to run Bitmessage prior to November 19, 22 2012?
Warren: No. 24 Judge: Would it have been possible for anyone 25 besides you to have sent a Bitmessage prior to Case 9:18-cv-80176-BB Document 261-1 Entered on FLSD Docket 08/13/2019 Page 9 of 97 Page 15 1 November 19, 2012?
Warren: No. 3 Judge: Would it have been possible for anyone 4 other than you to have received a Bitmessage prior 5 to November 19, 2012?
Warren: No. 7 Judge: If I were to show you a printout of a 8 Bitmessage that wasn’t sent by you but was 9 purportedly sent prior to November 19, 2012, would 10 that message then necessarily been forged?
Warren: Yes.
added that if mail is sent via an ISP or a web-based mail service, the date and time will usually be correct. However, if the sender is running a mail server, then he probably can backdate an email, perhaps by setting his PC’s clock to an earlier date.
This isn’t the first time that the self-styled Satoshi Nakamoto fails to prove his case by presenting court documents that appear to be fake. For instance, plaintiffs’ counsel suggested that computer scientist had forged a number of emails supposedly dating to 2011 and 2012, as the messages bore “metadata” placing them far more recently. Additionally, a font copyrighted in 2015 appeared on an email message that Wright claimed to have sent in 2011.
The estate of Wright’s late business partner, Dave Kleiman, filed a lawsuit over claims he misappropriated a potentially 10-billion dollar fortune. Kleiman died in 2013 after having been ‎confined to a wheelchair for years ‎following a motorcyle accident in 1995‎.
The allegations concern the ownership of between 550,000 and 1.1 million bitcoins, as well as the ‎intellectual property rights of various blockchain technologies.
Dave Kleiman was an IT expert in Pam Beach, Florida, who had much expertise in computer ‎forensics and ‎security. ‎The relationship with Craig Wright, which remained mostly hidden, ‎was born out of a mutual obsession with cryptography and data security, the ‎court papers say. ‎
In 2015, leaked emails from Wright to Kleiman showed ‎they had been discussing a new form of electronic money, months before the launch Nakomoto’s whitepaper about Bitcoin in January 2009.‎
Shortly after his death, according to the filling, Wright made contact with Dave’s ‎brother to inform him that they had been working on a project together and that ‎Kleiman had mined enormous amounts of bitcoins, and requested to check his ‎old computers for wallet files.
This might have given Wright access to information ‎that only Satoshi could have known, which in turn have been used when Craig ‎once tried to offer proof that he is
