SEC v. Ripple lawsuit outcome anticipated, John Deaton outlines likely results

The US financial regulator, Securities and Exchange Commission’s legal battle with cross-border payment settlement firm Ripple has raged on without an end. XRP holders anticipated that Judge Torres would rule on the case on March 31, based on the prediction of legal counsel Stuart Alderoty. 

However, Ripple proponent John Deaton informed the XRP Army that the ruling may come two months hence. Deaton took to Twitter to shed light on the different outcomes in the SEC v. Ripple lawsuit, ranking them from the best to worst for the payment firm. 

The best outcome is an outright win for Ripple and the worst is Judge Torres granting a summary judgment in favor of the SEC, in which case Deaton would ask the judge to comment on the secondary sales of the altcoin that affect XRP holders. 

The Ripple proponent told the community that the decision could come out within the next 30-60 days or the next day, as there is no deadline for the same. 

What to expect from XRP price

After yielding nearly 21% gains for holders over the past week, XRP price nosedived to support at $0.51, earlier today. Interestingly, there was a massive surge in XRP trade volume across Korean exchanges Bithumb, Upbit and Korbit, ahead of this decline.
