In the run-up to the holidays, the SEC had a bruising week in its case against Ripple Lab.
Going into the weekend, the SEC filed yet another extension of time to file its objection to Magistrate Judge Netburn’s ruling on the Motion for Reconsideration of the DPP Ruling.
For the SEC, the focus remains on documents and emails relating to internal discussions and speeches, which the SEC is looking to have portions redacted.
On April 11, Judge Netburn denied an SEC motion for the courts to reconsider a ruling relating to a William Hinman speech where Hinman stated that Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are not securities.
The SEC’s extension request references Judge Netburn’s ruling from April 11 and a previous decision dated January 13, 2022.
This week, the SEC got a win after last week’s loss.

SEC Wins a Minor Victory in its Case Against Ripple Lab
On Tuesday, Judge Netburn denied a Ripple Lab motion to strike a supplemental report filed by SEC expert Dr. Albert Metz.
Extending the discovery deadline extended to May 13, the SEC can re-depose securities and finance expert Dr. Albert Metz.
The deposition is relevant as the SEC believes that Dr. Metz can relay the economic significance of Ripple’s announcement concerning the performance of the XRP token.
By way of history, Dr. Metz concluded that Ripple Lab was able to influence the price of XRP tokens through news and public announcements. The SEC is now looking to allow Dr. Metz the opportunity to contest Ripple’s rebuttal exports.
Ripple Lab experts Dr. Laurentius Marais and Professor Daniel Fischel concluded that Ripple’s public statements had a “modest” influence on XRP price moves.
The latest ruling provides Ripple Lab an opportunity to file a supplemental report in response to Dr. Metz’s analysis of his supplemental report.
Defense lawyer James Filan shared the court ruling denying the Ripple motion to strike the Metz report.
Filan went on to tweet,
“The court criticizes the SEC, finding that “the SEC has conducted itself improperly by serving an unauthorized report on the last day of discovery,” but declines to strike the Metz Supplemental Report.”The Judges and politicians are in the hand of the Politicians who run the world listen to George carlin and waken up
