Ripple to Respond to SEC’s Penalty Request by April 22


  • Ripple is to file a legal response by April 22.
  • SEC dismissed charges against Ripple’s top executives.
  • No final pretrial conference is scheduled in the Ripple case.

Ripple Labs Chief Legal Officer Stuart Alderoty has stepped up to defuse the misinformation about how the lawsuit between Ripple and SEC has been. This was one of the clarifications that had followed a post on X former Twitter post by a digital currency influencer known as ‘Crypto Eri’ that was not clear in detailing what the next procedure in the case was, most importantly, a final pretrial conference

CLO Clarifications on Ripple legal proceedings

Stuart Alderoty emphasized the inaccuracies in the social media post, including the rest of the date of the last pretrial conference. On the subject of the hearing, he informs that there will be no such conference as the SEC has discharged the charges brought against Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse and the company’s co-founder, Chris Larsen, according to Alderoty.

Ripple’s CLO mentioned the important dates of the matter. He revealed its recommendations for the penalties by April 22, 2024. Consequently, the SEC will have 15 days to respond to the motion. These deadlines are the all-around legal procedures after the regulator’s acceded standpoint in the suit filed.

Impacts on the case on the broader crypto market 

Such a legal confrontation between the SEC and Ripple is particularly interesting, considering that the case’s resolution could impact future US regulatory approaches to other crypto assets. 

XRP’s case initially concerned the token’s theoretical security or non-security nature. During this process, there have been different twirls and turns, which have influenced Ripples’s performance in the market, causing investor sentiment to be shaky.

Throughout Ripple’s legal battles, it has provided clarity, banishing any doubts and enabling all parties to be made aware of the current procedures. The crypto ecosystem stays observant of any development in publishing the agency’s findings, as the outcome could set the standards for prosecuting virtual assets within the U.S. legal system.
