Ripple v. SEC: major court decisions may make direction of lawsuit imminent
In a recent tweet, Fox reporter Eleanor Terrett shared two key decisions that are being awaited in the Ripple-SEC case. The first one concerns the Hinman emails and docs: Judge Netburn has to decide whether or not they fall under attorney-client privilege. The second one is related to the SEC’s motion to seal its opposition to CryptoLaw founder John Deaton’s request to file an amicus brief on the agency’s expert witness, Patrick Doody. According to Terrett, both decisions are now imminent and might be made by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, as reported by James K. Filan, Ripple defendants have requested that their response to the SEC’s opposition to the amici motion be filed publicly. However, the SEC is expected to submit its proposed redactions to the defendants’ response (stating what to seal and what to make public) on June 23.
