“After more than 18 months and 6 court decisions, we finally have the documents of Hinman (internal emails of the SEC and the drafts of his infamous speech of 2018),” Alderoti said.

Sec claimed that the speech of the former official reflected his personal views. In February, the commission sent a petition to the court, according to which Hinman expressed the position of the corporate finance department. So the department hoped to extend the DPP action to the drafts.
July 12, 2022, Judge Sarah Nesberen called the position of the regulator by hypocrisy and rejected the request for the refusal to disclose internal documents.
On August 16, the commission accused Ripple lawyers of using a “fundamentally inconsistent argument”. In objection to the decision of the Court, the SEC indicated that Hinman’s speech is not related to the case, and referred to the privilege of lawyer secrets.
At the end of September, the Analysses Judge Torres ordered the department to disclose documents. Then the lawyer James Filan suggested that the regulator could delay the transfer of internal papers “for another two to three months”.
Commenting on the tweet of Alderoti, CEO Ripple Brad Garlinghaus said that “when the truth will ultimately go out, the shame of their [commission] behavior shocks you”.
