According to the recent tweet by attorney James, the two parties have filed a request that any motions by third parties to seal portions of the parties’ judgement filing be filed subject to the court’s September 12th, 2022 order. Ripple and SEC did this to avoid being dragged by third parties
Ripple and SEC To Avoid Being Dragged By Third Parties
Regarding the request, Ripple and SEC want all sealing motions to the summary judgement filings made by third parties to be due by December 9, 2022. Additionally, oppositions to these sealing motions are expected to be filed no later than December 22, 2022.
“The parties respectfully submit this joint application to request that any motions by third parties to seal portions of the parties’ summary judgment filings be subject to the court’s September 12, 2022 order,” the parties stated in the letter.
Ripple and SEC had initially published a joint calendar last week to govern all sealing motions for the summary judgement motions which was granted by then approved by Magistrate Torres Analisa, thus indicating that all sealing motions for summary judgment must follow the court-approved calendar.
Proposals Approved By The Judge
Also on October 18th, 2022, both parties are expected to file opposing each party’s summary judgement motions under seal while the parties will meet two days after to identify possible redactions in the opposition before public redacted versions of the opposition briefs on October 24, 2022.
Ripple and SEC will file sealed versions of the reply to summary judgement briefs on the 15th of November, 2022 while two days later, they are requested to meet and confer to identify possible redactions sought by each side. On November 21st, 2022, the parties (Ripple and SEC) will file publicly redacted versions of the reply briefs to summary judgements.
According to the page shared, on 22nd December 2022, the parties are expected to file an opposition to omnibus (big) motions to seal.
