Share link:


  • Ripple-SEC legal battle gets new deadlines: SEC’s brief by Mar. 22, Ripple’s by Apr. 22, SEC’s reply by May 6.
  • Ripple and SEC granted extensions: Ripple for discovery, SEC for reviewing documents.
  • Ripple-SEC case crucial for crypto regulation: Outcome affects industry compliance and sets precedents.

Updated schedule for remedies briefing


Attorney James K. Filan, a prominent figure closely monitoring the Ripple-SEC case, disclosed the revised timeline for the remedies briefing. According to Filan’s announcement on X, the SEC is slated to submit its opening brief by March 22, with Ripple expected to file its opposition brief by April 22. Subsequently, the SEC will submit its reply brief by May 6.

The recent adjustments to the deadlines come on the heels of Ripple’s pursuit of an extension for remedies-related discovery in February. Initially, Ripple had sought to extend the deadline from February 12 to February 20, citing the need for additional time to address a dispute over the relevance of post-complaint discovery. The request was granted, affording Ripple a one-week extension to produce a substantial volume of documents.


SEC’s motion for extension granted


On February 27, 2024, the SEC, represented by Jorge G. Tenreiro, submitted a letter motion to Judge Analisa Torres, seeking a further extension of time to file remedies-related briefing. The regulatory body cited the necessity to review recently produced documents and finalize its briefing following Ripple’s granted extension for discovery. Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn granted the SEC’s motion for an extension of time in early March.


As both parties prepare to present their respective arguments, stakeholders in the cryptocurrency ecosystem and beyond closely monitor the proceedings. The legal and regulatory landscape surrounding digital assets remains complex and subject to evolving interpretations, underscoring the importance of clarity and consistency in regulatory frameworks.

The Ripple-SEC legal battle continues to unfold with the establishment of new deadlines for remedies briefing. Against contentious disputes and procedural maneuvers, the case underscores the intersection of innovation, regulation, and legal interpretation within the burgeoning cryptocurrency sector. As stakeholders await further developments, the outcome of this landmark case is poised to shape the future trajectory of digital asset regulation and compliance on a global scale.
