A Delaware bankruptcy judge allowed a list of creditors for FTX to remain sealed for at least another three months on Wednesday..
Judge John Dorsey, overseeing the wind-up of Sam Bankman-Fried’s empire, shot down a bid by media organizations and the U.S. government to keep the legal process transparent, but indicated that he may change his mind during a future hearing.
“I’m reluctant at this point to say I’m going to require the disclosure,” Dorsey said at a hearing Wednesday.
“I’m going to overrule the objections and allow them [creditor lists] to remain sealed at this point,” he added, saying he would review the issue after three months. “We’re talking about individuals here who are not present – individuals who may be at risk if their name and information is disclosed.”
