Ripple Labs closer to victory in the ongoing lawsuit
In the SEC vs. Ripple lawsuit, payments giant Ripple is closer to victory in the case as the presiding judge Sarah Netburn denied the SEC’s motion to review documents that are material to the prosecution.
Proponents believe this is a victory for Ripple Labs as former SEC director William Hinman’s speech on Bitcoin and Ethereum is no longer privileged. The document is admissible in court, pushing Ripple closer to its victory.
Judge Sarah Netburn’s decision to deny the regulator’s request to shield documents under privilege offers Ripple a higher probability of winning. The SEC previously did not object to the admission of documents; however, the regulator shielded the speech and said that it was Hinman’s personal views and not SEC policies.
Judge Netburn was quoted in her decision,
The SEC seeks to have it both ways, but the Speech was either intended to reflect agency policy or it was not. Having insisted that it reflected Hinman’s personal views, the SEC cannot now reject its own position.
Analysts have evaluated the XRP price trend and consider the 2022 volume point of control at roughly 0.77 as key to the altcoin’s next move. The volume point of control is a level where the highest amount of an asset has changed hands and is associated with a higher propensity for providing support and resistance. The recent break below this level now means XRP has taken on a bearish tone, although analysts remain optimistic.
Analysts consider the volume point of control as a key level for Ripple price, with a break above bringing into reach an upside target for the altcoin at $0.91, as it collects liquidity. This would be followed by the next target higher at $1.01.
