Judge accepts Ripple’s motion in XRP lawsuit

Pursuant to the order, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was seeking an order to seal and redact certain documents filed by the parties to exclude expert testimony. The commission in its request mentioned that its proposed deletions are intended to protect the identity of expert witnesses.


Ripple and the defendants were also seeking an order directing these parts to be redacted. They said their removal was to protect Ripple’s confidential business interests and the legitimate privacy interests of third parties. The defendants asked the court to argue that revealing their contact details could directly cause significant damage to their negotiating position in future agreements. This can directly lead competitors to adjust their sales plans and pricing policies.

While non-parties MoneyGram International, Inc asked the court to redact parts of certain details to protect their own private business information.
