There are so many ongoing Ripple lawsuits that you have to count them with both hands. Sure, it’s unfortunate, but it keeps Ripple in the public eye, providing the masses with constant XRP news; this isn’t the case for many altcoins as Bitcoin (BTC) often hogs all the attention and altcoins get left behind.
Recently, however, the company has scored small victories, such as on August 14th, the day a Judge denied one of the suits.
The latest victory came this week.
Ripple Lawsuits: XRP vs. R3
Last year, a lawsuit between Ripple and R3, a blockchain development startup, became public knowledge. It started with R3, which filed a legal suit against Ripple, claiming the company violated a partnership agreement clause.
Ripple wasn’t having any of that. In response, the company filed a suit in California claiming that R3 did not meet various obligations under the partnership agreement.
These complaints kicked off a long-running legal dispute. But now it’s over.
On Monday, Ripple released a statement announcing the end to the XRP R3 lawsuit with an undisclosed settlement. Specifically, Ripple said that all parties have “reached a settlement on all outstanding litigation.”
Unfortunately, the terms of the agreement will remain confidential, says Ripple. Some might find this to be disappointing. Why? Because out of all the Ripple lawsuits, this is the one that accumulated the most public attention.
At the same time, however, the legal dispute needed to be put to an end. If both parties want to keep the terms on the down-low but scrap the XRP lawsuit altogether, so be it. And that is what they did, with Ripple writing that “both sides look forward to putting these disputes behind them.”
