Brad Garlinghouse's lawyers file request for Binance documents in 'international' challenge to SEC lawsuit

The suit in between Ripple Labs and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, now includes significant crypto exchange Binance after a current filing on behalf of Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse.

According to court files submitted in the Southern District of New York on Monday, Garlinghouse’s legal group has actually asked for files “relevant to the case and unobtainable through other means” from Binance Holdings Limited, the Cayman Islands- based subsidiary of the significant cryptocurrency exchange. The filing mentioned U.S. laws worrying the Department of State and the Hague Convention and asked the court to provide a letter of ask for the Central Authority of the Cayman Island to oblige proof fromBinance

“Mr. Garlinghouse seeks foreign discovery on the basis of his good faith belief that [Binance Holdings Limited] possesses unique documents and information concerning this case, and specifically, concerning the process by which transactions in XRP allegedly conducted by Mr. Garlinghouse on foreign digital asset trading platforms were conducted,” stated the filing.

Specifically, the legal representatives appear to be tough claims from the SEC that the Ripple CEO offered more than 357 million XRP tokens on “worldwide” crypto trading platforms to financiers “all over the world.” The group mentioned Section Five of the Securities Act of 1933, mentioning the supposed unlawful XRP sales used just to domestic sales and deals of securities. The files asked for of Binance might consist of proof in assistance of that claim.

“As the SEC knows, Mr. Garlinghouse’s sales of XRP were overwhelmingly made on digital asset trading platforms outside of the United States […] the discovery that Mr. Garlinghouse seeks will be relevant to demonstrating that the offers and sales that the SEC challenges did not occur in this country and are not subject to the law that the SEC has invoked in this case.”
