In response to requests from news outlets, including Bloomberg and Coindesk, Judge Lewis A. Kaplan has ruled to reveal the names of the non-parental guarantors who co-signed Sam Bankman-Fried’s $250 million bond.
The bond guarantors are Andreas Paepcke, a research scientist at Stanford University, and Larry Kramer, a former dean at Stanford law school, where Bankman-Fried’s parents work.
According to the court filing, the judge waited for Sam Bankman-Fried to appeal to his earlier ruling to unseal the names before the close of business on Feb. 15, 2023, before issuing the order.
Bankman-Fried had previously asked the judge to seal the names of the two non-parental guarantors for fear of public reprisals.
