Ripple vs. SEC: Bill Morgan Hopes XRP Community Gently React to Former SEC Lawyers’ Comments

Last updated on May 18th, 2024 at 12:28 pm

Ripple vs. SEC Update – Former SEC lawyer Marc Fagel recently made a comment stating that Ripple violated Section 5 of the United States Securities Act. In a recent update, Attorney Bill Morgan calls for calm and urged the XRP community to politely react to the comments.

To make it clear, Section 5 points out that all issuers of non-exempt securities must register with the Security and Exchange Commission. Fagel has continued to claim that Ripple breached the SEC security laws by selling “unregistered security” in the form of XRP.

In addition, the prominent lawyer maintains that SEC has a better argument than the blockchain company. Also, he says that the exchange commission is right in declaring that Ripple broke section 5 of the Securities Act. He made his judgment based on his 30 years of being a lawyer for and against the SEC. He said,

“My opinion, based on 30 years as a lawyer both for & against the SEC, is that the SEC is correct that Ripple violated Section 5.”

XRP community reacts to Fagel’s statement

Marc Fagel has continued to incite the XRP community with his consistent statements that the SEC has a better summary judgment argument than Ripple and that the regulators will win in the Ripple vs. SEC case.

In as much as he has confidence, he still asserted in his tweet that he will not be “shocked” if the court declares in Ripples’ favor. Consequently, his comment continues to generate negative feelings among XRP holders.

@Kashta, a member of the XRP community replied to Fagel’s tweet and accused him of making biased comments. The user pointed out that only Judge Torres can say Ripple offered unregistered security. So until then, Ripple has not violated Section 5 of the United States Securities Act.

The popular Australian-based lawyer Bill Morgan reacted to Fagel’s comment and called for calm among the XRP community. He urged members not to be rude toward the lawyer rather, he asked them to thank him for sharing his view based on his “highly relevant 30 years experience.”

In the meantime, involved parties have already passed their motion for summary judgment and the crypto community eagerly awaits Judge Torres’s ruling.

Meanwhile, CryptoLaw founder John Deaton and Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse had previously predicted that the ruling will come soon.
