XRP Lawsuit: Conference Regarding Hinman Emails Will Be Available To Public For Listening

June 5, 2022 2:55 pm Comments

Defense lawyer James Filan just shared conference call-in details which will allow anyone to be able to listen to the upcoming conference regarding the Hinman emails.

Specifically, the purpose of the conference that is scheduled on June 7th is to discuss the internal documents that are related to the Hinman speech back in 2018 and whether or not they will be protected by the recent SEC’s privilege claims.

In order to listen to the conference, all you have to do is just dial-in the call-in numbers that are provided on the brief that James Filan shared on Twitter.

According to the brief, the call is expected to start on 3pm EST on June 7 and will likely be a call that is listened to by all the major players in the crypto industry given the importance of the XRP lawsuit.

U.today reports:

As previously covered by U.Today, U.S. Magistrate Judge Analisa Torres scheduled a conference call for Tuesday, June 7, at 3:00 pm EST, to “discuss the SEC’s renewed assertion of attorney-client privilege as to internal documents related to then-Director Hinman’s June 14, 2018 speech.”

The conference call is slated for Courtroom 23B, Daniel P. Moynihan Courthouse, 500 Pearl Street, New York, New York.

Earlier, the SEC, in its persistent bid to prevent the release of the Hinman emails about the famous Ethereum speech, in which the former SEC official declared that Ether was not security, had submitted motions citing attorney-client privilege.

The SEC asserts that the privilege applies because these documents reflected confidential communications between Hinman and SEC attorneys.

Ripple, in its response to the SEC’s opposition, however, claims that the documents may not be protected by this privilege as the agency claims, stating several reasons.

Additionally, as mentioned in Ripple’s reply to the SEC’s initial claim to use this privilege, the Ripple legal team responded that only Hinman himself should be able to assert this privilege.

As a result, the SEC should not have the ability to even use the privilege in the first place which means that Ripple has a strong chance in winning this dispute.

Of course, what happens in court is always unpredictable, but at least the XRP community can start to enjoy some transparency in the court rulings by having access to listen to the actual conference.

At the same time, the community is also preparing for the upcoming launch of a new bridge which will connect Avalanche to the XRP Ledger (XRPL).

U.today concludes:

XRP Ledger first launched in June 2012 and continues to run without a hitch or a glitch.

As reported earlier, Apex, a true Node-as-a-Service provider, announced it is currently building a bridge from Avalanche to the XRP Ledger (XRPL), which is scheduled to go live by the end of August 2022.

Apex Bridge will allow XRP tokens to be transferred from XRP Ledger (XRPL) to Avalanche and other Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) networks.
