The former head of the bankrupt in 2014, the Japanese crypto currency exchange Mt. Gox mark Karpeles (Mark Karpeles) is not able to achieve through the Northern district court of Illinois meet filed February 25 petition to suspend proceedings against him in the U.S. “in light of the civil rehabilitation companies in Japan.”

The argument Karpeles was based on the fact that the plaintiffs, Gregory green (Gregory Greene) and Anthony Motto (Anthony Motto), requiring recognition of the personal responsibility of the defendant for the loss of the investment in Mt. Gox will probably be able to get their money in the process, and therefore to preserve judicial resources and avoid unnecessary legal costs manufacturing in the US can be canceled.

Along with the denial of the motion, the court scheduled the next hearing on 1 may and extended until may 15 the deadline for responses previously filed documents.

Recall that in early February it became known that the company CoinLab also filed a claim for 1.7 trillion yen ($16 billion) to Mt. Gox. However, Karpeles maintains his innocence in the events that led the firm to the loss of millions of dollars of customers and subsequent bankruptcy.
