The lawsuit between Ripple, the US-based cross-border payment firm, and the United States Securities and Exchange and Commission (SEC), continues to advance with each passing day.
The case took another turn in favor of the payment behemoth, following the insistence of the Judge for the regulatory agency to produce its internal documents that contain its discussion about XRP, Bitcoin (BTC), and Ethereum (ETH).
In a letter dated 6th May 2021, signed by Judge Sarah Netburn, the important things that must be included in the documents were highlighted by the judge.
The new development was excitedly shared in a tweet by Attorney Jeremy Hogan and a defense lawyer and former federal prosecutor, James K. Filan.
Jeremy Hogan tweeted, “The SEC made two arguments as to why it didn’t have to disclose the internal memoranda re BTC, ETH and XRP. The Judge denied both of those arguments and is saying “No, you really DO need to disclose those documents.” PS. This Judge is very polite when rebuking a party!”
