As the SEC and Ripple case continues to drag on, new developments are surfacing week-in and week-out. New anonymous players are joining the lawsuit to restrict the exposure to their respective organizations. Safe to say that the case has been brought into life after the release of Motion of Summary Judgement by both parties.
At present, a couple of third parties have filed redactions from the SEC and Ripple summary judgements.
Leave this out
A certain Third Party ‘B’ filed a motion to seal requesting several redactions from the SEC’s summary judgement. The news has been reported by Defense Attorney James K Filan. According to legal documents, these redactions look to protect the identity and legitimate interest of this party and its employees.
The party holds that the redactions do not constitute a “judicial document” and a good cause for the sealing. Furthermore, the reason for this is that the information from the redactions has no bearing on the motion. Even if the redactions constitute as a judicial document, the third party privacy interests weigh in favour of sealing.
The document further accounts that if the information is made public it will cause harm to the party and its employees. Right before the weekend, another anonymous third party filed a motion to seal portions of the Ripple summary judgement.
Moreover, this party had earlier submitted redactions in connection to the Daubert Motions in late July. The party stated in the 28 July letter that aimed to protect its confidential business information interests of its current and former employees.
