The US Securities Commission (SEC) case against Ripple is nearing another turning point. The fast-track motion replies must be submitted by both parties by December 5th.
But according to attorney James Filan, there won’t be much of it for the time being. This is because Judge Torres won’t decide which documents will be kept under seal until January 9, 2023.
But there are two more issues that will be crucial for the trial’s progress in addition to the request for an expedited procedure. These include the sealing of Hinman papers and the exchange of expert witness denials. For many months, the SEC tried everything in its power to stop the delivery of these, but it was ineffective.
Filan anticipates a major decision day rather than a separate ruling on the sealing of the Hinman documents from Judge Torres.

I have some thoughts on timing regarding the Hinman documents, the summary judgment motions and the outstanding sealing issues. Rather than typing out a long thread, I've written them in the attached document. pic.twitter.com/Q5sPTCiFL6
