One other “delay tactic”
In early July, District Choose Torres granted the SEC’s movement for permission to file a 120-page omnibus (massive) movement to exclude or restrict the professional testimony of 10 Ripple defendants’ consultants.
Shedding mild on the 2 motions filed by the SEC, former federal prosecutor James Okay. Filan explains: “One is the unique request to file an omnibus movement to exclude, and this one is a movement to file an omnibus reply to the unique movement.” It lets the events simply file one massive doc every, overlaying all the pieces.”
It reeks of one other delay tactic, nothing can transfer ahead till consultants testimony is confirmed, so transfer to exclude, motions each methods, then begin the method over by asking decide to rethink as a result of she misinterpreted the information. Bang, 2 extra months delay.
