Ripple opposes SEC’s request for another deadline extension
As U.Today covered earlier, Ripple opposed the request sent by its opponent, the SEC, to the court, where the regulatory agency demanded a further deadline extension.
Ripple does not want to delay the court decision as it does not believe that XRP is an unregistered security.
The agency requested additional time on March 21 to inform the court whether or not it will make additional findings.
The SEC’s request came up against Brad Garlinghouse (CEO) of Ripple and Christopher Larsen (co-founder) of Ripple, among others.
Just recently, Garlinghouse said in an interview that he was optimistic about the upcoming outcome of the case against Ripple. This happened after the court denied the SEC’s motion to strike down Ripple’s fair notice defense.
