As the Ripple-SEC lawsuit progresses, positive expectations are in place, which has impacted the XRP price all the while. On Sept. 29, the XRP community cheered when Judge Torres ordered the release of former SEC official William Hinman's documents.

According to James K. Filan, "If the SEC decides to file a motion for reconsideration of Judge Torres’s ruling on the SEC objections regarding the Hinman documents, that would be due October 13."

Earlier, Filan highlighted a key number of steps the SEC could take to further delay compliance with the order to produce the Hinman documents.

First, the SEC could ask Judge Torres to reconsider her order overruling the SEC's objection. Second, the SEC could skip the motion for reconsideration and ask Judge Torres to certify an appeal of the decision issued. Third, the SEC could go to the Court of Appeals directly on a Petition for Writ of Mandamus. Filan is, however, optimistic that these maneuvers would have a low probability of success.

Other key dates

The opening motions for the summary judgment have already been filed while the redacted version was made public on Sept. 18.
