U.S. court rejects SEC’s request to disclose personal financial records of ripple executives
According to news on April 11, after the US local court tried the SEC’s request for senior executives of ripple to disclose their personal financial records, the judge rejected the relevant requirement of the US securities regulatory agency in court, that is, ripple cannot be forced to disclose the personal financial data of its current and former chief executives.The local court found no evidence that the SEC’s request was necessary or appropriate.Earlier, the judge approved ripple’s motion to force the SEC to provide bitcoin and Ethereum related documents, which was considered ripple’s first legal victory in the sec.
As early as mid March, the US SEC required two senior executives of ripple to disclose their personal financial records on the grounds that the two executives (Chris Larsen and Brad garringhouse) were accused of illegally selling $130 million worth of rupees.The legal team of ripple co-founder Christian Larsen and chief executive Bradley garringhouse argued that the SEC’s investigation into the personal financial condition of the two executives had nothing to do with the ongoing ripple lawsuit.Its legal team said: “in a non fraud lawsuit, the defendant has agreed to provide relevant information related to the challenged transaction, and the SEC’s attempt to steal the defendant’s personal financial information from various aspects is totally inappropriate ultra vires behavior.”

Judging from the current transaction scale and demand of digital assets, bitcoin can only be banned unless the Internet is completely shut down.She also said governments around the world would never be so stupid.
