Defendants Voice Against The SEC’s Recurring Delays!
Defense lawyer James K. Filan has brought to the notice, the recent occurrences in Ripple’s legal brawl. The plaintiffs have made submission of the motion to request an extension of no longer than a week. After the individual defendants file their answers, to inform the court of whether the SEC intends to conduct any additional discovery.
Successively, the SEC in the filing cites that, in pursuant to the court’s order from March 14th 2022. The parties have met and conferred, on March 17th, to determine whether an additional discovery is necessary.
Whilst the defendants have advised that they do not seek to conduct liability discovery now. They would want to reserve their stance after the summary judgements.
Consequently, the plaintiffs mention that they are unable to commit to a position. Until it has an opportunity to review the individual defendant’s answers.
The individual defendants have objected to the extension, saying the SEC has made delays long enough. And that nothing should further delay Ripple from moving for summary judgements and proving their stance.
