Stanford Research Director, Former Dean Revealed to Be Sam Bankman-Fried’s Bond Signers

A federal judge ruled the names of Sam Bankman-Fried’s bond co-signers should be revealed after Bankman-Fried did not apply to the appeals court.

District Judge Lewis Kaplan, of the Southern District of New York, originally ruled in favor of news organizations, including CoinDesk, which argued the names of Bankman-Fried’s signers were in the public interest, but did not rule pending an appeal. While Bankman-Fried’s attorneys filed a notice that they would appeal, they did not file the actual appeal, the judge said in a new ruling Wednesday.

The signers were revealed to be Stanford University’s Andreas Paepcke and Larry Kramer, who put up $200,000 and $500,000, respectively. Bankman-Fried’s parents are both Stanford instructors. Paepcke is a senior research scientist while Kramer is a former dean of Stanford Law School.
