In the ongoing lawsuit involving Ripple Labs and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), legal experts in the pro-XRP community are predicting that the company will likely lose its latest court motion. In a recent post on Platform X, attorney Jeremy Hogan highlighted Ripple’s potential loss in its recent legal action.

In his post published on May 2, Hogan wrote: “The hardest thing to do in CT is say you think the SEC will win a motion. But HERE GOES: I think the SEC will win this motion. And even if the Court considers the witness to be an “expert”, I think that instead of attacking the witness, it will just allow Ripple to depose him, etc., as he did before. Now, if you’ll excuse me while I go pray that I’m wrong, which doesn’t happen very often.”

The comment came following an update from attorney James K. Filan who shared Ripple’s filing of a letter seeking additional support for its motion filed on April 22 to eliminate new specialized materials and in response to the SEC’s opposition on April 29. April to this strike motion.

In addition to Hogan, another lawyer from the pro-XRP community, Bill Morgan, also highlighted his pessimistic view regarding what should happen with Ripple. In one publication, Morgan declared: “I think Ripple will lose the motion, but the judge will accept that Fox provided some expert evidence and allow Ripple to testify. Then we can see what the SEC says on May 6th in its brief response on solutions and then wait for a decision on solutions.”
