At present, Tether, facing multiple lawsuits, has received a claim from the prosecutor regarding the plaintiff's request to merge the three lawsuits, which Tether has not denied. On January 17, 2020, Tether said in a statement: "We have no objection to the plaintiff's request to merge these trivial claims lawsuits, which were initially filed in New York in October, Washington in November, and New York in January." According to Odaily's previous news, according to Thursday's filing in the court, the plaintiffs in three separate class action lawsuits against Bitfinex and Tether have taken action to merge their cases. Court documents from David Leibowitz, Eric Young and Bryan Faubus allege Bitfinex and Tether have manipulated the cryptocurrency market. Filing documents show that their case has common clues, including allegations that Bitfinex and Tether violated federal law to manipulate bitcoin and bitcoin futures prices.
