Ripple Vs SEC – 31|8 the discovery deadline

The fact discovery date for the ongoing lawsuit is August 31. Ripple’s move to “compel the production of internal and inter-agency documents,” among other things, is being debated by both parties.

Attorney Anthony James Filan recently tweeted:

According to the Reports :

Due to the unexpected illness of an attorney for one of the parties who was integral to the Larsen deposition, and the intervening vacation schedules of other attorneys, the parties will not be able to reasonably complete the previously scheduled depositions of Garlinghouse and Larsen before August 31.”

The Reports also claim that the court had previously extended the original fact and discovery deadlines by two months from 2 July to 31 August for fact discovery, and from 16 August to 15 October for expert discovery. However, due to the aforementioned reasons, if the deposition is not completed, the expert reports will also be delayed.
