If XRP is found to be in violation of securities regulations, it could be the biggest decision for Ripple.

If XRP is found to be in violation of securities regulations, it could be the biggest decision for Ripple.

According to Cryptolaw founder John DeatonHer decision could be the "biggest" moment for XRP in this particular case. She has read 63 emails that are drafts and comments about Director Hinman's lecture on ETH not being a security, which is what the motion for reconsideration is about.

John Deaton believes that the chance for XRp to be mentioned in any of the 63 emails remains likely, although the final version of the speech discusses both Bitcoin and Ether and does not refer to XRP.

Deaton finds that XRP might really benefit if the SEC turns over their email. Deaton also mentions that even if the SEC were to force the judge to turn over their emails, they would still be able to pierce the privilege and get them.

There are two potential scenarios for what could happen with the crypto law founder. Perhaps, Judge Netburn rules that the emails are privileged and orders that the SEC turn them in but it is also possible that XRP is mentioned and/or the evidence is exculpatory.

Second, if Judge Netburn overturns her previous decision and determines the emails to be privileged, then the emails might not be as important to Ripple as perceived.
