The Ripple’s pretrial conference with the SEC Is going to be the first between the two bodies. The meeting is going to take place at precisely 10:00 am EST on the 22nd of February. According to reports, both parties will have to summarize the case’s core matters, and judges can intervene if no conclusion or settlement is made. This way, both parties may eventually settle their disputes.
Reports from U.Today claim that both parties submitted a joint letter stating that no agreement has been reached as of last week. The letter also disclosed that the discovery stage of the case should end on the 18th of August.
The SEC filed a lawsuit against Ripple after claiming that the US-based technology company sold its tokens to investors without enrolling it as a security.
