The SEC has misplaced 4 of its final 5 circumstances within the Supreme Courtroom, because of the few that had the braveness and assets to combat again towards the SEC’s bullying and clinging to stretch authorized positions that weren’t trustworthy to the regulation.
Is Ripple Prepared To Battle In Supreme Courtroom?

I’ve little doubt Ripple will win and the present Supreme Courtroom will shut down the SEC’s gross overreach. The West Virginia vs EPA case is all you must learn to agree with me. Ripple’s abstract judgment transient is already an especially effectively written appellate transient.
