Seems like you have a valid law suit against the phone company that ported your sim.

What law did the phone company break? Breech of contract? I wouldn't be surprised if they indemnified themselves in the TOS for your phone plan.

Regardless of what is written in a contract, if enough money is involved there can be a lawsuit that might result in a settlement or award.

People forget that the cell company is giving you the possibility to recover your account as well through standard practices. I believe what happened to OP is that he used a weak one, that was based on publicly available informations (he states that in article himself) and that is how the attacker got the foothold in the first place. After that was a simple game of playing by the rules all the way to the coinbase account and draining it.
