The identities of two people who helped secure Samuel Bankman-Fried’s bail can be made public, a federal judge has ruled.

US District Judge Lewis Kaplan put his order on hold until Feb. 7 to allow for an appeal. If a notice of appeal is filed before then, the hold can be extended another week to allow for a request to the higher court to stay the order further, the judge said.
