A legal challenge is calling on a court to overturn an order allowing the central organization developing the Tron cryptocurrency to privately litigate a lawsuit through arbitration.
Richard Hall and Lukasz Juraszek, employees fired from the Tron Foundation last year, filed a with the First District Court of Appeal in California in San Francisco on June 17 to reverse in a alleging wrongful termination and hostile work practices at BitTorrent, a file-sharing service acquired in 2018 by the Tron Foundation. In March the San Francisco Superior Court approved the Tron Foundation’s and BitTorrent’s request to settle the lawsuit in arbitration instead of in court.
Parties to the lawsuit and their lawyers did not respond to requests for comment.
