Sam Bankman-Fried’s bail conditions still too lenient, says judge

On March 10, Reuters reported that U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan had expressed concerns over the proposed bail conditions for former FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried.

As previously reported by Cointelegraph on March 4, Kaplan — serving on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York — proposed that Bankman-Fried be prohibited from using smartphones, tablets, computers and any video game platforms or devices that allow chat and voice communication. The proposal said that Bankman-Fried’s communication should be limited to “a flip phone or other non-smartphone with either no internet capabilities or internet capabilities disabled.”
