FTX attorneys accuse Sam Bankman-Fried’s parents of unjustly enriching themselves with company funds

AP Business Writer

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Lawyers for collapsed cryptocurrency exchange FTX Trading are accusing Sam Bankman-Fried’s parents of exploiting their influence over their son and the company he founded to enrich themselves by millions of dollars. A lawsuit against Allan Joseph Bankman and Barbara Fried was filed Monday as part of the FTX bankruptcy case in Delaware. It alleges the couple siphoned millions of dollars from the company, while spending lavishly on a luxury home in the Bahamas and funneling contributions to political committees and Stanford University. Bankman is a Stanford University law professor and expert in tax law, and Fried is a retired Stanford law professor. Attorneys for Bankman and Fried say the claims against them are completely false.
