Will This Move Affect Ripple?

As per court filings, Attorney Kylie Chiseul Kim has filed the letter to withdraw as counsel for Ripple Labs. It stated that Kellogg, Hansen, Todd, Figel & Frederick, P.L.L.C., and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP will continue to be counsel for the defendants. However, the court has granted the motion.

This move comes in when the crypto industry is eagerly waiting for the public release of the infamous Hinman speech linked documents. However, both parties submitted a joint letter seeking one week extension until June 13 to file public versions of the vital documents. This also includes unredacted cross motions for summary judgment.

The joint letter stated this is the first request to extend the deadline in the matter of Hinman speech linked memos.
