According to the defendants, the claims made by the plaintiffs lack required legal basis that would allow them to proceed further. Bitfinex points out that their accusations are based on an unpublished academic paper that has "key methodological flaws."     

As reported by U.Today, the lawsuit, which was filed on Oct. 7, accuses Tether and Bitfinex of large-scale market manipulations. Their liability allegedly reaches a staggering $1.4 trln in damages. 

Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino states that the company's latest move is meant to shield the crypto industry.

Earlier this month, Tether addressed the updated version of the controversial research paper published by academics John Griffin and Amin Shams. The company vehemently denied manipulating Bitcoin prices while calling the updated study "an embarrassing walkback."
