Class-Action Lawsuit Against Terra and Do Kwon Voluntarily Dismissed

By BeInCrypto October 03, 2023 In Terra

Investors have withdrawn a class-action lawsuit against Terraform Labs (Terra) and its co-founder Do Kwon. The lawsuit alleged crypto assets security fraud, resulting in the loss of investor funds.

Nick Patterson initiated the lawsuit in July 2022 through Scott+Scott after the collapse of the Terra ecosystem.

Investors Elect To Drop Lawsuit Against Terra and Do Kwon

In a recent court filing, Patterson was representing investors “similarly situated” to himself. However, the filing implies that he won’t receive any compensation for dropping the court case.

“Lead Plaintiff Michael Tobias and named plaintiff Nick Patterson (together, “Plaintiffs”), hereby voluntarily dismiss this case, in its entirety, without prejudice, only against defendants Terraform Labs, Pte. Ltd., and Do Kwon.”


The lawsuit’s dismissal came without any reasons provided.

Meanwhile, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) continues its legal action against Terra and Kwon. The SEC claims that Terra and Kwon had a part in “orchestrating a multi-billion dollar crypto asset securities fraud involving an algorithmic stablecoin and other crypto asset securities.”

Shortly after its crypto token LUNA collapsed in May 2022, it rebranded it to Terra Luna Classic (LUNC).

At the time of publication, LUNC’s price stands at $0.00006.

On January 11, Albright Capital chose to voluntarily drop its lawsuit against Terraform Labs. It was alleging similar allegations of fraud.

Meanwhile, authorities in other countries are also investigating Kwon.

On April 17, the South Korean law firm Kim & Chang confirmed that Kwon had paid them $7 million before the collapse of TerraUSD and its sister coin LUNA.

This comes after a KBS News report stating that Korean prosecutors and Singapore law enforcement were tracking money sent to the company in various payments.

Kwon is currently detained in Montenegro. He received a four-month prison sentence on June 19 for attempting to travel with a falsified passport.
