According to this document shared on Twitter by the company's attorney Jeremy Hogan, the attorney said the litigation process between the SEC and Ripple could end in November this year.

According to the document, Ripple requested that the class action start date be postponed from August 26, 2022 to November 18, 2022. As stated in the document, it was asked to postpone the class action until November 18, citing overlapping legal and factual issues between the class action and the SEC case.
