New Updates in the Ripple-SEC Lawsuit

Shared in recent updates by defense attorney James K. Filano With the XRP community, Ripple and the individual defendants have filed their opposition to the SEC’s motion for partial reconsideration and clarification of Judge Netburn’s DPP ruling. Ripple says the SEC is just looking for a “takeover” with its latest move.

Attorney Jeremy Hogan, partner at Hogan & Hogan, believes Ripple’s recent move may be “the most difficult task” on the SEC. In a previously failed SEC attempt, District Judge Torres in one word order denied the SEC’s motion to file a sur-sur-response in support of its motion to attack Ripple’s fair notice defense.

As U.Today previously reported, the SEC has opposed the transfer of notes from Matthew Estabrook, counsel to then SEC Commissioner Elad Roisman, to Ripple defendants. However, the agency went ahead and submitted the notes to Judge Netburn for an on-camera review. Ripple requested the Estabrook notes earlier in February, arguing that they were not protected when the agency claimed the deliberative process privilege (DPP).
