On the other hand, the US SEC or Security Exchange Commission wants Ripple’s communication with employees in their Slack account. As per SEC, Slack communication will expose the wrongdoing of the company on all XRP-related transactions.
SEC submitted its request on August 9 to Sarah Netburn, a Magistrate Judge, and in a letter, Jorge Tenreiro, the attorney of SEC, complained that a huge Slack data were missing from Ripple.
As per SEC, Ripple didn’t gather and evaluate the messages of 33 people, yet the company agreed to search and share these with others. These are multi-party instant messages, chat messages, and direct messages shared on public channels, which all employees can access.
According to SEC, getting these messages is important as these can serve as evidence. Ripple didn’t disclose direct messages about XRP, and it argued that collecting data for the said custodians might be disproportionate to the lawsuit’s needs.
The Federal law banned Slack from giving access to the corporate Slack account of Ripple without any consent from the company. Despite the request of the SEC for consent, Ripple refused to provide.
