XRP Lawsuit: Attorney John Deaton and Ripple CTO David Schwartz expect a summary judgment by Judge Torres before or in September as the XRP community grows impatient over the delay in the Ripple vs US SEC lawsuit. Some even argue that there is something strange going on with the lawsuit, as it has now gone seven months without a ruling.
XRP attorney Deaton and Ripple CTO on summary judgment
John Deaton on July 11 revealed some facts about how much Judge Analisa Torres unusually takes to decide on lawsuits. The XRP community awaits Judge Torres’ decision as Ripple and US SEC responses were filed in December. Although it’s been 7 months, Ripple isn’t the only case before Judge Torres. He said the Thor Equities case’s answering papers were also filed in December and Judge Torres has not yet issued a ruling.
However, he revealed that Judge Torres took 7 months in Quiller Inc vs US to announce her decision, and 6 months in the Fitzgerald case and several other cases. Deaton believes there is a significant chance of reigning this month as it has taken her just as long.

Ripple CTO David Schwartz replied to Deaton, saying he believes a verdict on summary judgment could come in late September.
“I know waiting is annoying and we would all like to have a ruling on summary judgment as soon as possible, but I wouldn’t think anything was wrong, unusual or strange until at least the end of September.”
Deaton says he agrees with Ripple CTO David Schwartz as Judge Torres’ decision has never been pending for more than 9 months. Deaton said he didn’t review every case, but found “none that were longer than 9 months (although one was slightly longer than 8 months).”
