Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried’s lawyers argue that the accommodations provided for his criminal trial preparation are inadequate. They claim that the millions of pages of discovery materials produced by the U.S. Justice Department are too overwhelming to access from jail. Bankman-Fried’s legal team believes that temporary release is necessary for him to properly participate in his defense. They emphasize his dedication to reviewing the voluminous discovery and creating analyses to share with his attorneys.

Bankman-Fried’s first trial is set to begin on October 3, followed by a second trial in March 2024.
