XRP Surges as Ripple Aims for “Very Big Win” Against SEC in Latest Filing

By Newton Gitonga

After a two-year-long gruelling legal battle, the dust may soon settle in the case against Ripple by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

In its latest court filing, Ripple Labs and two top executives have asked the court to issue a summary judgment in their favour claiming that the SEC failed to prove its case against them as required under the law.

In the motion, the defendants argue that the SEC failed to present key evidence backing assertions that all “XRP was an investment contract with Ripple and therefore a security under the federal securities laws.”

Invoking the 75-year-old decision in the SEC v. W. J. Howey case, the defendants stated that The Supreme Court had settled the meaning of the statutory term “investment contract” by setting out three key ingredients.

First, the investment contract has to involve a contract between a promoter and an investor establishing the investor’s rights to an investment. Secondly, that contract must impose post-sale obligations on the promoter to take specific actions for the investor’s benefit. Thirdly, the contract must grant the investor a right to share in profits from the promoter’s efforts to generate a return on the use of investor funds. According to the defendants, the SEC had failed to prove all three.

The defendants also claimed that the SEC could not lawfully extend its regulatory reach to XRP transactions that occurred on foreign cryptocurrency exchanges or outside the territorial scope of U.S. securities laws.

Furthermore, they questioned the SEC’s authority over crypto-assets, arguing that the Securities Act did not confer the regulator authority to police non-securities.

“My hot take – after two years of litigation, the SEC is unable to identify any contract for investment (that’s what the statute requires); and cannot satisfy a single prong of the Supreme Court’s Howey test. Everything else is just noise.” Stuart Alderoty, Ripple’s General Counsel Tweeted. “Congress only gave the SEC jurisdiction over securities. Let’s get back to what the law says.”

Although many disputes are still being briefed, including a decision on the SEC’s objection to producing the Infamous Hinman speech-related documents, the latest motion is crucial in that it could bring the lawsuit to a close. According to the court’s schedule, the SEC is expected to file its opposition to the motion by October 18, followed by a series of consultations between the parties that will help the court decide the case, hopefully before year-end.

Meanwhile, the crypto community remains confident that the court will rule in its favour, removing the cloud of uncertainty that has suppressed XRP’s price since April last year. As of publication, XRP trades at $0.38 after a 19% gain in the past three days.
