Elanor Terret, a correspondent for Fox News from the US media and who provides important information on the case from time to time, said that judges Netburn and Torres, including today, can conclude two important decisions. Terrett, today and in the next few days, will decide whether William Hinman’s speech falls within the attorney-client privilege and the SEC’s objection to an informative participation request from John Deaton, a Ripple supporter but currently unrelated to the case. . .

After the Fox reporter’s tweet, there has been a very serious increase in the price of XRP since the morning hours. XRP, which was up more than 20%, has approached the $ 0.40 limit.
Hinman’s speech which has been delivered since the beginning of the case …
As is well known, William Hinman, one of the former SEC executives, said in a speech given in 2018 that Bitcoin and Ethereum are not stocks.

The SEC, which disputes this request, argues that Hinman’s speeches are subject to solicitor-client confidentiality and government agency and should not be disclosed to the court. Here, Sarah Netburn, one of the judges of the case, can announce her official and final decision on this issue at any time.
Netburn showed his hand
