A federal judge overseeing the case against former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) has denied motions from his legal team seeking to dismiss all but three criminal charges against him.

In a June 27 filing in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Judge Lewis Kaplan issued a memorandum opinion on motions that would have stopped the discovery and disclosure of certain information related to SBF’s criminal case. Bankman-Fried’s legal team filed motions on May 8 aiming to have the judge dismiss 10 out of the 13 criminal counts he faces, which would have left only conspiracy to commit commodities fraud, conspiracy to commit securities fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
