The Ripple community was given the opportunity to listen to the materials of the upcoming court hearing, scheduled to discuss all outstanding issues related to the issue of attorney-client privilege in relation to William Hinman’s documents.
Judge Sarah Netburn ordered that the Ripple community and interested members of the public be able to listen to an upcoming meeting between the blockchain company and the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding Hinman’s documents.
How to Listen to a Trial
Owners of XRP can hear the trial by calling two phone numbers provided by the court for this purpose, and they will be asked to provide the access code contained in the order.
“The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at 15:00, ECF No. 493. Members of the public can listen to the materials,” — says an excerpt from the order.

Recording or sharing is not allowed
Although members of the public are allowed to call and listen to the conference between Ripple and the SEC, Judge Netburn banned the recording and distribution of conference materials on any video or audio sharing platform, including YouTube, Twitch, etc.
“Unauthorized recording and relaying of the conference (e.g. YouTube, Twitch, audio streams only, etc.) are strictly prohibited. Any unauthorized recording will be investigated and any person found to be conducting such conduct may be subject to criminal penalties.”
Next week’s conference
As reported yesterday, after repeated arguments over the SEC’s recent claim that William Hinman’s document is protected by attorney-client privilege, the court scheduled a hearing between the parties to discuss all issues related to the documents.
However, under new coronavirus-related (COVID-19) security measures, the court will limit the number of attendees at the upcoming hearing.
Meanwhile, the Hinman 2018 document has been an integral part of the ongoing lawsuit. While Ripple is convinced that a document containing 68 draft emails will help make a decision that XRP is not a security, the SEC was determined to keep the documents away from Ripple.
Twice the SEC was ordered to hand over the documents to Ripple, but the agency refused to heed those calls, citing new reasons why it could not hand over Hinman’s documents.
The SEC’s final justification for trying to defend the document is that Hinman discussed it with some attorneys at the agency prior to drafting the speech, making it protected by attorney-client privilege.
Ripple investors hope that all outstanding issues related to the document will be considered at the upcoming conference.
