Judge Rejects SEC’s Bid to Appeal Ripple (XRP) Ruling

Ripple Scores Victory as Judge Blocks SEC's Appeal in XRP Case

In a recent development in the Ripple case, the judge has turned down the SEC’s request to appeal the recent victory secured by Ripple. Judge Analisa Torres made this decision on October 3, 2023.

Furthermore, the SEC’s plea for a postponement was also dismissed as unnecessary. The scheduled hearing is set to take place on April 23, 2024, starting at 9:00 AM.

In the court’s pretrial scheduling order, several important deadlines have been established:

  1. By December 4, 2023, both parties must submit all required pretrial documents. This includes the joint pretrial order, charging motions, decision form, and voir dire questions.
  2. A copy of each requested document to be admitted into the court record must also be submitted by December 4, 2023.
  3. On April 16, 2024, at 2:00 PM, attorneys representing all parties must attend a final pretrial conference.

This ruling stands as a significant victory for Ripple in its ongoing legal battle with the SEC.
