Ripple opposes SEC's request for another time extension

As U.Today covered earlier, Ripple has opposed the request sent by its opponent, the SEC, to the court, where the regulatory agency required yet another time extension.

Ripple does not want to delay the decision of the court since it does not believe that XRP is an unregistered security.

The agency requested additional time on March 21 in order to inform the court whether it will make any extra discoveries or not.

The request of the SEC was opposed, in particular, by Ripple's Brad Garlinghouse (CEO) and Christopher Larsen (co-founder).

Just recently, Garlinghouse stated in an interview that he was optimistic regarding the approaching outcome of the case against Ripple. It happened after the court denied the SEC's motion to strike the fair notice defense of Ripple.
