Ronnie Abrams Judge

A judge, Ronnie Abrams, has removed herself from a case involving FTX, a cryptocurrency exchange, and its former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF).

The judge made this decision because her husband works at a law firm, Davis Polk & Wardwell, which provided advice to FTX in 2021.

The judge’s husband, Greg Andres, is a partner at the law firm and has no involvement in the case, but the judge decided to remove herself from the case to avoid any potential conflict of interest.

SBF was recently released on a $250 million bail bond and promised to appear in court for future proceedings and not engage in illegal activity.

However, some people were surprised by the amount of the bail because SBF previously claimed to have less than $100,000 in assets during a bankruptcy filing.
