Bittrex Exchange Involved in Court Case with Mongolian Blockchain Company ZG Top

At the start of 2019, a lawsuit was filed in the district court of Washington by ZG Top Technology Co, Ltd. Against a “John Doe.” Meaning, an unnamed party. Recently, a new ruling was issued by the court allowing for an “ex parte” motion to conduct discovery.

Essentially, the ex parte motion means that the other side does not need to respond to the motion. In this case, it makes sense to grant the motion because the other party is currently unknown and the only way to protect the interested party’s rights is to grant the motion. Courts will normally only grant the motion if the unknown party’s rights will not be prejudiced either.

Further, the ex parte motion means that the parties need not meet and confer, which is normally a requirement under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. In this case, the court’s order granting the motion allows for discoveries concerning the

“name, street address, telephone number, and e-mail addresses of John Doe.”

Bittrex will be permitted to have a subpoena issued against the entity or individual it believes is the other party, in which the same will have 30 days from the date of service to object. As for other forms of discovery, the court determined that there was no good cause shown.
