New York Judge Says Kanye West Likely to Win ‘Coinye’ Suit

(Chicago Sun-Times) A New York judge says Kanye West’s lawyers can do the research necessary to learn the identities of the creators of “Coinye West” bitcoins.

U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres on Thursday granted lawyers for the rapper the legal authority to learn who will face a lawsuit saying bitcoins were created to cash in on his fame.

The lawsuit filed earlier this week in Manhattan federal court seeks unspecified damages.
