A judge overseeing bankruptcy proceedings for crypto lending firm Celsius Network has denied motions from three users with different claims on assets stuck since July.In orders filed with the United States Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York on Jan.

25, Judge Martin Glenn denied a motion from Rebecca Gallagher, a Celsius claimant who argued her interest-bearing “Earn” assets on the platform were “her property and not property of the bankruptcy estates” under the control of the debtors.

The judge denied similar motions from Celsius account holders Mark Benzaken and Kulpreet Khanuja.Motions from the three individuals included claims that Celsius’ terms of use did not allow for transferring their assets from the platform to control of the debtors in the event of bankruptcy.

Gallagher and Khanuja both called out Alex Mashinsky by name, claiming the former Celsius CEO misled customers with public statements and said users would retain full ownership of their assets, respectively.Judge Glenn said the court took the allegations against Mashinsky “seriously” but denied all three motions.
