Bankman-Fried's prosecutors need not review bankrupt FTX's files, judge says

A US judge on Thursday denied Sam Bankman-Fried's request to compel prosecutors to review files belonging to FTX, the now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange the defendant founded.

US District Judge Lewis Kaplan made the ruling in a hearing in Manhattan federal court after Bankman-Fried, 31, said FTX's current management was acting as part of the prosecution team and its records should thus be available to him as evidence in his Oct. 2 trial.
