Karpeles and the now bankrupt bitcoin exchange are currently being sued for consumer fraud after Mt. Gox announced it could not account for several hundred thousand customers bitcoins.

Karpeles lives in Japan, has never been to the United States, and according to his attorney, was not correctly served the complaint that launched the lawsuit.
