The records, which include internal SEC communications and drafts of the controversial 2018 speech by the former director of corporation finance, remain sealed from the public, according to Ripple general counsel Stuart Alderoty, who first reported the story.
- Dec. 5
Important date Another important deadline approaching is Dec. 5, when redacted reply briefs will be made public. There is speculation about whether the reply briefs would comprise the Hinman emails.
This is incorrect. December 5 is when the reply briefs are publicly filed but WITH redactions. I expect we see the emails there but in redacted form. Later in the month the Court will decide on unredacting them.

The emails will be included in the reply papers. Still, they will be redacted, according to lawyer Fred Rispoli, a party to the Ripple action who submitted a motion to appear pro hac vice on behalf of Reaper Financial. Despite the possibility of a settlement, according to Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, this is only possible if XRP is regarded as a nonsecurity. In the first half of 2023, according to Garlinghouse, the matter should be resolved.
The former federal prosecutor turned defense attorney James K. Filan anticipates that District Judge Torres will rule on the expert and summary judgment motions concurrently on or about March 31, 2023.
