Early bitcoin supporter and entrepreneur Charlie Shrem has won his first battle in an ongoing lawsuit filed against him by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss and their firm, Winklevoss Capital Fund.
According to a court document filed Thursday by federal Judge Jed Rakoff, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern (NYSE:) District of New York, a $30 million attachment initially granted against Shrem was lifted after a hearing earlier in the day.
The attachment order, which was granted on Oct. 2 but remained under seal until Oct. 26, allowed the U.S. Marshal for the Southern District to freeze assets belonging to Shrem.
