The slander trial Craig Wright v Roger Ver rejected by the British courts
A British judge has dismissed the slander trial against Roger Ver suing Craig Wright.
Wright claimed that Ver defamed him in a YouTube video released in mid-April, in which Ver denounced Wright’s claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto.
