Steven Nerayoff’s lawyer detailed plans to legally confront certain Ethereum figures regarding its troubled early days. Nerayoff’s attorney, Michael Scotto, said they have evidence to back up forthcoming lawsuits against the US Government and additional private actors and whistleblower filings. The lawsuits will be filed in New York State and Federal Courts and may include charges of malicious prosecution and breach of contract. Nerayoff plans to release whistleblower filings and file the malicious prosecution lawsuit, and his attorney maintains they have ample evidence to back claims of hundreds of millions in damages from broken deals. The validity of these allegations is still unproven, but if true, they may present a crisis moment for Ethereum as doubts multiply regarding its origins and Buterin’s leadership.
