Ripple v. SEC: SEC Request for a Deadline Extension Granted

Ripple v. SEC: SEC Records Slight Win as Its Request for a Deadline Extension Is Granted. 

A U.S. Federal High Court has granted the Securities and Exchange Commission’s request to extend the March 23, 2022 deadline for parties to establish a discovery schedule for the Individual Defendants, Chris Larsen, and Brad Garlinghouse.  

The court’s decision was communicated via text to the parties as published on Twitter by attorney James K. Filan, which read: 

The SEC shall inform the Court of its position on whether any additional discovery is required within a week of filing the Individual Defendants’ answer.” 

What’s Next?

Furthermore, the involved parties are mandated to meet for a briefing schedule for the purpose of summary judgment motions. After the meeting, a Joint Proposed Schedule is expected to be submitted by the parties no later than a week after the securities regulator’s submission. 

Following the development, the Individual Defendants’ answer to the SEC’s complaints is due to be submitted on April 8, 2022, while the Securities and Exchange Commission’s position on whether there is a need for any additional discovery is also due on April 15, 2022. 

Similarly, the Joint Proposed Scheduling Order as mandated by the court is also expected to be submitted latest on April 22, 2022. 

It is worth noting that regardless of the deadline attached to the aforementioned events, the Individual Defendants’ answer to the SEC’s complaints would be the primary determinant of the deadline for both the SEC’s position on additional discovery and the Joint Proposed Scheduling Order. 

For instance, should the Individual Defendants provide answers to the SEC’s query on April 1, 2022, the deadline for the Securities and Exchange Commission’s position on additional discovery will be shifted to April 8, 2022, while the Joint Proposed Scheduling Order will be due on April 15, 2022. 

Investors Hopeful Amid SEC’s Incessant Delays

As reported, the SEC had earlier requested a one-week extension to the deadline to be able to propose a discovery schedule for the Individual Defendants. Ripple rejected this plea. 

Industry players have accused the agency of employing delay tactics to frustrate the defendant. 

Not discouraged by the SEC’s delay tactic, Ripple enthusiasts are still keeping faith that the lawsuit’s outcome will be in the blockchain company’s favor.
