With the legal battle between Ripple Labs Inc. and the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is approaching its last months, the company's president, Monica Long, has stated that the firm is not planning to back down from the fight. According to a CNBC report featuring an interview with President Long, the company veteran noted that they are "planning to continue to fight the case all the way through."

Ripple v SEC: Law Veteran Names Only Reason XRP Case Settlement Is Possible

In Long's assertions, the fact that the odds are currently in the company's favor following the ruling that XRP, the crypto asset under dispute, is not in itself a security is raising hopes that a major win is in the works. Ripple has indeed come a long way for a lawsuit that has lingered since the SEC brought the charges back in December 2020.

With momentous wins here and there, the company has shown grit, with a commitment to help the broader crypto ecosystem fight the regulator for its unjust crackdown on companies operating in the industry.

Long acknowledged that the XRP ruling provided the needed clarity that can help the firm expand its business in the U.S. and other markets globally.

Collective industry fight against SEC

Besides the Ripple and SEC brawl, some of the biggest industry giants are also fighting with the SEC in suits that have now extended beyond the normal civil suits to what can be described as criminal charges, especially in the case of Binance.
