It seems that the Mt. Gox soap is nearly over. The US lawyer representing the country’s domestic exchange users, Jay Edelson, indicated that the plan was approved in a Northern District of Illinois court.
This gives a legal backbone to the claims that have been put forth by the clients that have suffered due to Mt. Gox. This ruling gives more weight and will probably be formally accepted in Japan.
According to Edelson: “The court granted our motion for preliminary approval of settlement and other proposals. We will now take it to Japan and seek approval from the Japanese Administrator.”
