In early June, a lawsuit was filed against Dudas for defamation. The lawsuit was brought by OPNX, who accused Dudas of making defamatory statements about its backers on Twitter. The statements referred to the backers as 'unrepentant scammers' who had defrauded their former business partners.
OPNX is associated with three crypto entrepreneurs: Mark Lamb of CoinFLEX, and Su Zhu and Kyle Davies of the now-defunct hedge fund Three Arrows Capital. These entrepreneurs have a history of being involved with bankrupt companies.
The lawsuit alleges that Dudas' tweets were false and damaging to OPNX's reputation. The company claims that the statements made by Dudas were defamatory and intended to harm its business and the reputation of its backers.
The lawsuit against Dudas for defamation highlights the importance of being cautious with public statements. It serves as a reminder that making false and damaging statements about others can have legal consequences. It is crucial to verify information before making any accusations or claims that could harm someone's reputation.
