Binance exchange is in court again, this time in a digital asset romance scam case in which the victim claims it should have done more to protect its users. The exchange filed in a Texas court to be exempted from the $8 million lawsuit, arguing that it doesn\u2019t fall under the jurisdiction of the Texas court. Divya Gadasalli filed a lawsuit in a federal court, claiming that Binance failed in its duty to stop the scammers. She allegedly lost digital assets she had purchased on Coinbase (NASDAQ:\u00a0COIN) to the scammers and believes that Binance, fellow exchange Poloniex (which is now owned by TRON founder Justin Sun), and American banks TD Bank and Abacus Federal Savings Bank should be held liable for the loss. She is demanding $8 million from the defendants. Binance has fought back, as Law360\u00a0reports. The exchange told a Texas federal court that the plaintiff based her allegations on \u2018paper-thin assertions\u2019 and that she had failed to establish a claim.\u00a0 Binance further claimed to be beyond the jurisdiction of the Texas court as it doesn\u2019t operate in the United States. Being a foreign entity, it was beyond the reach of the local Texan civil laws, its filing claimed. Binance Global, the entity that runs the embattled exchange worldwide, indeed doesn\u2019t operate in the United States. However, it still services American residents through its subsidiary, Binance.US, which has been mired in controversy with issues such as the\u00a0resignation of former Comptroller of the Currency Brian Brooks\u00a0under suspicious circumstances to\u00a0another former CEO disappearing\u00a0for months now after leaving her position at the exchange. Digital asset romance scams have been on the rise, with scammers faking an emotional connection to their victims before convincing them to either send them digital assets or invest in a dubious company.
