3. Judge John Dorsey, of the Bankruptcy Court of the District of Delaware, has stated that the letter will have no impact on his decisions regarding the case.

A bipartisan group of four U.S. senators have sent a letter to the judge in the FTX bankruptcy case, urging him to appoint an independent examiner. The signatories of the letter, which includes both crypto supporters and skeptics, are advocating for an independent examiner to have full authority and resources to review and investigate the case.

The letter was addressed to Judge John Dorsey, of the Bankruptcy Court of the District of Delaware, and was signed by Senators Sherrod Brown, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Marco Rubio. The senators believe that having an independent examiner will ensure that all facts and laws in the case are presented openly and fairly. They also believe that it will provide necessary oversight to the proceedings and that it will protect the interests of all involved parties.

In response to the letter, Judge Dorsey stated that the letter „will have no impact whatsoever on my decisions in this case which will only be based upon the facts and law presented by the parties.“ He also noted that he will take into consideration any motion that is filed by any party in the case.

The FTX bankruptcy case is one of the most high-profile cases in the crypto space, as it involves the collapse of the second-largest crypto exchange in the United States. The case has already seen several twists and turns, and the appointment of an independent examiner is sure to make the proceedings even more interesting.

The FTX bankruptcy case has been ongoing since June 2020, when the exchange filed for bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the District of Delaware. Since then, the case has seen several attempts to resolve the issues and the parties involved, including a $150 million debt restructuring agreement that was approved by the court in October 2020.

The motion for the appointment of an independent examiner was filed in October 2020 by FTX chief executive Sam Bankman-Fried. The motion is still pending before the court, and it remains to be seen whether the court will approve it. If it is approved, the examiner will have the authority to review and investigate the case, which could result in further changes to the proceedings.
