XiO Fund LLP v. Silicon Valley Bank: Discovery Application

Application by Gwynn Hopkins, of Perun Consultants Limited, in Hong Kong, and Gordon MacRae, of Kalo (Cayman) Limited, of the Cayman Islands, as Joint and Several Interim Receivers of XiO Fund LLP, of the Cayman Islands, to take discovery from Silicon Valley Bank for use in legal proceedings in the Cayman Islands, filed at the U. S. District Court for the Northern District of California. Editor’s Note: This discovery application includes, as an exhibit, a copy of the underlying complaint alleging fraud involving hundreds of millions of dollars that was filed under seal at the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands on May 8th, 2019 and, eight months later, remains sealed as part of the Cayman Court’s secretly-imposed mass-sealing policy – implemented by Chief Justice Anthony Smellie – that conceals from public view even the existence of many cases involving allegations of impropriety and insolvency against the jurisdiction’s hedge funds.
