Ripple’s response to SEC’s privilege motion expected today.
According to attorney James K.Filan, a member of the defendant’s legal team, Ripple may file a response to SEC’s privilege motion today. After initially labeling the content of its former official’ speech as his own opinion, Ripple, a month ago changed his stance. As the claimant now argues that documents relating to William Hinman’s 2018 speech have a protection of deliberative process privilege. Under the act, DPP, state institutions are entitled not to disclose any documents that involve deliberative process.
While Ripple’s response to the motion is expected today, the defendants are not tieing the summary judgement to it. As the company aims to proceed further in lawsuit.
The legal battle is continuing between SEC and Ripple amidst the chaos in the market as Bitcoin’s value has recently fallen drastically.
