Disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried’s bond co-signers’ names are closer to being made public after a federal judge granted a motion to unseal their names.
The names of two additional signers, whose identities were previously redacted, were part of the $250 million bond co-signed by Bankman-Fried’s parents in December.
A group of news organizations requested the information be made public, citing the public’s right to know, while Bankman-Fried’s lawyer argued that the co-signers could face threats and harassment.
The motion is stayed until February 7, pending an appeal, and will remain in effect until Feb. 14 if the court receives notice of appeal.
Prosecutors are also seeking to amend Bankman-Fried’s bail terms, alleging that he attempted to contact a witness in the case.
