The legal battle between the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Ripple has yet to get the most anticipated summary judgment. However, the latest fillings show that both sides have asked the court to set a deadline to seal the summary judgment materials.
Ripple seeks delay in XRP lawsuit
James Filan reported that Ripple and the U.S. SEC have asked the district court to set a deadline of January 4, 2023, to seal the parts relating to the pleadings. Otherwise, they waive any objection to the court’s ruling on the request to seal the parts.
The Ripple Letter mentions that omnibus motions to seal the parties are already due on December 22, 2022. It adds that the parties will endeavor to notify all unaffected parties whose confidential discovery materials will appear in the summary judgment materials. However, clarifying the motion to seal will give them the opportunity to draft those documents.

He added that the court had previously approved a similar process for dealing with non-party sealing motions in connection with the Daubert motions.
