Ripple Lawsuit: SEC Files Motion to “Reduce” Ripple’s Expert Testimony

The SEC stated that Ripple’s defendants agreed to an “omnibus” or “large” motion, not to exceed 120 pages, provided that they were provided with the same page limit for their response. The SEC did not object. “Those experts issued reports, including initial and/or rebuttal reports regarding numerous subject matters concerning this case, which total over 500 pages, excluding exhibits. To conserve judicial and SEC resources, the SEC proposes to file one omnibus motion to which combines what would otherwise be 10 separate motions against Defendants’ experts into one single brief,” the SEC stated in its brief.

XRP-friendly lawyer, Fred Rispoli, explains what this means: “This is highly routine and ordinary in high-stakes litigation. Ripple will be moving to strike all of the SEC’s experts as well. Now you know why Ripple just staffed up with 2 more attorneys.”
