Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple’s CEO, responded at accusers in current litigation against the company. He stated that depositors couldn’t show that Ripple lied regarding the utility of XRP. The offenders accuse Ripple, saying how the company didn’t utilize XRP altcoins in 2017 when it comes to settling funding transactions. However, Ripple and Garlinghouse didn’t say otherwise.
In May 2018, Bradley Sostack, the plaintiff, filed a case against Ripple. His allegations were about how Ripple didn’t succeed in registering XRP with the United States or the US SEC, Securities and Exchange Commission, despite qualifying as security.
Garlinghouse fought with Ripple as per Law360’s report. It unveiled that their filing with the federal court in California stated that the accuser didn’t succeed in offering necessary accurate claims to show that the company and the statements of the CEO are untrue.
Garlinghouse also said that Sostack is advising the court to establish unverified leaps of logic.
