Ripple Files New Motion to Compel SEC to Hand Over Notes – See Details Here

Defense lawyer James K. Filan has shared the latest update in the Ripple v. SEC case in a recent tweet. Ripple has filed a motion to compel the SEC to turn over notes from a meeting between its CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, and former SEC commissioner Elad Roisman.

The SEC, on the other hand, has filed an objection to the motion, claiming the deliberative process privilege (DPP).

The SEC’s objection comes just a week after the court ordered that some records be released, according to Ripple’s filing:

Exactly one week after the court issued its ruling on the application of the deliberative in this case,  following months of negotiation, letters, briefing, and argument, the SEC produced yet another privilege log listing just two documents, and asserting the DPP over both.

Attorney Jeremy Hogan, partner at Hogan & Hogan, criticized the SEC’s move, stating the agency has no tenable basis for claiming the DPP here since it conceded that the notes are not related to the Ripple investigation.

Ripple says the SEC argued that Garlinghouse won’t need the notes since he was part of the meeting. Ripple further stated that contemporaneous meeting recordings provided to the SEC demonstrate that the Ripple boss had departed the meeting, forming a belief that the SEC had recognized the legal “purgatory” posed by regulatory ambiguity.
