Tel Aviv District Court judge Michal Amit-Anisman has given Moshe Hogeg 30 days to reach a compromise with Huwan Hugh, a Chinese investor who filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Hogeg in January of this year.

The lawsuit was also brought against the former Singulariteam chief financial officer (CFO) and current Saga Foundation CFO Yaron Shalem and the Stox Technologies company. The complaint alleges that Hogeg intentionally misrepresented how the funds raised through the Stox ICO would be used and distributed.

Moshe Hogeg is also the chief executive officer of cryptocurrency smartphone startup Sirin Labs and owner of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club.

Judge Recommends Involvement of Third-Party Mediator

According to local media outlet Globes, judge Amit-Anisman brought the parties to the temporary agreement after three hours of discussion, specifying that “requests will not be made at this time,” rather “the parties will come directly or by a third party who is a mediator.” The judge recommended Meira Harel as a possible mediator, describing Harel as “an expert in the field of cryptographic currencies.”

Globes also reported that “it was further agreed that after a period of 30 days or a longer period, insofar as the parties request an agreement to extend the 30 days granted to them, each party will be entitled to petition the court with a request to make a decision on the pending applications.”

Emphasizing the challenges of adjudicating cases involving cryptocurrency amid the current global climate of opaque regulatory apparatus pertaining to crypto assets, Judge Amit-Anisman noted that the case “raises serious questions that have not yet been answered, neither in Israel … nor by regulators in the world.”
