The SEC is trying to prevent Ripple from searching its employees’ personal devices
As previously reported by U.Today, the SEC agency is seeking a court order prohibiting Ripple from receiving its internal communications and preventing access to the personal devices of its commission staff.
The SEC insists that Ripple make “new and broader claims” that exceed the limits allowed by the court order.
The supervisory authority accuses Ripple of “discovery gamemanship” and harassment.
This began when the court partially approved Ripple’s access to SEC documentation on the status of Bitcoin and Ethereum as non-security assets.
But now the SEC is filing for a prohibitive order to allow Ripple to only work with the SEC’s external documents in this case.
