A lawyer for CoinDesk told CoinDesk that the U.K. Supreme Court has denied Craig Wright’s request to appeal against a decision in his case with Peter McCormack.

The Supreme Court confirmed this ruling in a post. The denial stated that “permission to appeal is denied on the grounds that the appeal does raise an arguable legal question.”

A panel of judges in July ruled that Wright only had a right to receive 1 GBP as compensation for a libel suit against Bitcoin podcaster Peter McCormack regarding Wright’s claim to being Satoshi Nakamoto.

Rupert Cowper Coles, a lawyer at RPC and McCormack’s representative, said: “We only found out today that the Supreme Court had refused Craig Wright’s request to appeal at the end last year.” “They’re happy that the judgment stands, [the] one-pound nominal damages award which Craig has unsuccessfully appealed twice.”

CoinDesk contacted Wright’s attorneys at Shoosmiths & McCormack, but had not heard back by the time of publication.

Wright’s loss is the latest in a series of legal battles he has been waging with a group of crypto companies, and several bitcoin developers.

The group rejected on Thursday, an offer to settle. This case has been ongoing for years. Wright claimed that the group had violated his copyright in Bitcoin’s blockchain database, white paper and file format.

The non-profit Cryptocurrency Open Patent Alliance Tweeted. The settlement offer isn’t accurate either. It comes with loopholes which would allow him to continue suing people.

COPA represents Wright’s original complaint and the 13 Bitcoin Core developers as well as companies like Coinbase and Block, which Wright named in his original legal complaint.
