The recent complaint is an addition to a year-old lawsuit against Ripple, though this time the complainants are quoting the SEC’s recently released “Framework for ‘Investment Contract’ Analysis of Digital Assets” and are pursuing to outline XRP as unlawful unregistered security under the framework.
The recent filing also maintains that Ripple debased California’s false advertising and unfair competition laws by purportedly “blurring differences between Ripple’s enterprise solutions and XRP to further drive demand,” and “paying exchanges to list XRP, limiting the supply of XRP to drive demand” among other things.” Ripple has until September 19th, 2019 to reply to this recent filing.
The complainants are requesting class-action status on behalf of all investors of XRP. Other prominent petitions for liberation include requiring the court to identify XRP as security and reimbursing for indemnities sustained by the complainants and (putative) class members.

The recent charges against Ripple support the ones made earlier. They declare that the crypto firm led by Brad Garlinghouse has been trapping investors into buying XRP, which is allegedly a security but not registered as one. Apart from the SEC guidance, the revised complaint states numerous laws to do with crypto-asset regulation.
The legal case goes back to May 2018, when investors pressed charges against Ripple, it’s chief and several top executives. The plaintiff indicated back then that XRP, which is sold by Ripple, has all it takes to be considered as virtual security. Subsequently, several other investors also instigated a legal suit directed at Ripple for a similar reason. All of those objections have been combined and transferred to the federal court. Besides, the amended petition intends to link XRP back to Ripple Labs, although the latter publicly claims that Ripple is not the emitter of XRP and has no links to the XRP blockchain.
