Ripple Scores Major Win Against SEC With ‘Fatal’ Exclusion of Expert Testimony


After the presiding judge in the legal battle between Ripple and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled on both parties’ motions to preclude certain experts’ testimony, pro-Ripple lawyers believe that the decision could prove disastrous for the regulator’s summary judgment motion.

CryptoCaster Quick Check:

As it happens, Scott Chamberlain, a former attorney and co-founder of the permissionless Layer 2 platform Evernode XRPL, shared his key takeaways on District Judge Analisa Torres’s ruling, in which he singled out the exclusion of one specific witness as “fatal to SEC,” on March 7.


His views were echoed by the legal expert and amicus curiae for Ripple, John E. Deaton, who agreed with Chamberlain’s analysis and expressed his opinion that “the expert’s preclusion is fatal for the SEC’s summary judgment motion,” which he later told Fox Business’ Charles Gasparino could arrive “any day now or in a couple of weeks.”

Problem with expert witness

As Deaton pointed out in the interview on March 8, Ripple had ten expert witnesses, while the SEC had five, challenged by both sides respectively, and the victory for the blockchain company was the exclusion of the witness “who was going to testify as to what XRP token holders thought in their heads when they purchased XRP

Meanwhile, he remains a strong believer that Ripple would win the case. His words arrive days after the blockchain company’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse once again questioned the SEC’s conduct, terming its recent onslaught against the crypto industry as an unhealthy way to regulate it.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
