In the ruling, U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan wrote that the plaintiffs would need to further demonstrate the “Sater defendants’ deceptive conduct and their justifiable reliance on that conduct in significantly greater detail.”
Sater stands accused of funneling money from the BTA Bank, as well as the government of Kazakhstan’s largest city, Almaty. While the court dismissed charges of fraud and unlawful means conspiracy against Sater, it allowed the suit as a whole to proceed.
