FTX Founder SBF Files Repeat Request for Temporary Release Before Trial

Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of collapsed cryptocurrency exchange FTX, has renewed a request for temporary release from jail during the course of his trial, according to a letter from his lawyers to the judge overseeing the case filed late Monday.

The request saga started in August, when his release on bond was revoked and he was locked up after a judge ruled he’d probably tried to tamper with witnesses. On Sept. 12, Bankman-Fried’s request to overturn that decision was denied. An appeals court rejected an attempt to overturn the ruling on Sep. 21.
