Garlinghouse is expecting an answer to Ripple’s summary judgment motion by the first half of next year.
Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple Labs, said he is not expecting the court to give an “answer” to the company’s summary judgment motion against the SEC this year.
According to Ripple’s CEO, sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the court would likely rule on the case by the first half of next year, Garlinghouse tells Bloomberg.
He stated that it is difficult to predict court proceedings, which is why he cannot predict the exact period the court would likely give its ruling on its summary judgment motion.
“I think we’ll have an answer in the first half of next year. We shall see whether that’s the first or second quarter,” the Ripple exec said.
Ripple Open to Settle With SEC
It can be recalled that the Silicon Valley tech company filed its summary judgment motion last month, asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit. Ripple claimed that XRP is not a security, as alleged by the SEC.
Per Garlinghouse, should the court rule that XRP is not a security, Ripple would consider settling with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
