Alec P. Harris and Katie F. Guilfoyle of Armstrong Teasdale and Aaron C. Gundzik of Gundzik Gundzik Heeger have stepped in to represent bitcoin mining platform Compass Mining Inc. in a pending breach-of-contract lawsuit. The suit, filed July 1 in California Central District Court by Meador & Engle on behalf of Veribi LLC, accuses Compass of not providing $1.5 million worth of 140 bitcoin mining servers and service plans. According to the suit, Compass contracted with Russia-based hosting company BitRiver to provide hosting servers for Compass’ North American clients. However, BitRiver was subjected to Executive Order 14024, which concerns sanctions on Russian entities and individuals, and in April 2022 Compass decided to ‘terminate its contractual relationship and business dealings with the hosting company.’ The case, assigned to U.S. District Judge Pedro V. Castillo, is 2:22-cv-04537, Veribi, LLC v. Compass Mining Inc.
