Stephen Palli (Stephen Palley), partner of the law firm in Washington, sent Monday a letter to the chief lawyer Bitfinex Stuart Hegner (Stuart Hoegner). In the letter Palli warned that in case of detection of connection of the exchange with the threats that got his client, the inevitable «legal consequences». Palli wrote:
«As you know, there continue to be threats to user @bitfinex’ed. If we learn that your client is directly or indirectly responsible for these threats or if any harm will be caused @bitfinex’ed as a result of these threats, prepare for the legal consequences.»
