Ripple and Sec Dispute

Ripple Labs, last month withdrew a new application regarding the Sec’s ongoing appeal request related to the dispute.

The SEC plans to appeal part of the critical decision made in July about whether someXRP sales by Ripple violated securities laws.

Lawyers representing Ripple said:

“The exceptional conditions required for interlocutory appeal are not present”.

“Firstly, the Court’s decision on the summary judgment does not raise an issue of law that is amenable to interlocutory appeal,” they continued.

“Secondly, the supposed significant reason for the dispute is only the SEC’s dissatisfaction with the Court’s application of Howey to most of the Defendants’ transactions in XRP.”
