Prosecutors in Sam Bankman-Fried trial compare defense argument to ‘Dumb and Dumber’

Prosecutors in the Sam Bankman-Fried trial have compared the defense’s argument to the movie “Dumb and Dumber” in response to a motion to dismiss criminal charges against the tech entrepreneur. The prosecutors claimed that the defense’s position was “fatally flawed” and argued that the defense was relying on similar misconceptions to the ones featured in the 1994 comedy starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. They argued that Bankman-Fried’s defense relied on the belief that individuals should not be held criminally liable for using popular technologies like smart contracts when the same processes may be used to commit crimes.
