In April, a CSGO veteran went on trial in the US for the alleged theft of more than a million dollars worth of gold and more than two million silver coins.
The trial in Brooklyn is the latest legal fight to hit the CSGO scene.
A federal judge in Connecticut, who was considering a motion to dismiss, is also looking into the case, which began when CSGO prodigy Jacob “KennyS” Schrub sent out a tweet saying he had an amazing amount of gold coins.
The coins were worth around $10,000 apiece, but Schrub later claimed that the coins were fake.
After Schrub was caught, a US Secret Service agent who had been monitoring him said he told him to stop tweeting about gold coins, but he continued tweeting about his stash.
He eventually stopped tweeting about coins and deleted his account, but that was not enough to convince US District Judge Mark Gottlieb to dismiss the case.
The trial is being overseen by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who is also the Manhattan U.
Vance is also trying to find out if the defendant is a felon, who can be jailed for up to 10 years.
He has been ordered to report every time he tweets about gold and coins, and he has also been ordered not to buy or sell any gold or silver bullion.
If convicted, the defendant could face a possible 20 years in prison.
The prosecutor also plans to ask the judge to find the defendant a rehabilitation facility.
