While Ripple sees a new lawyer join the team, the SEC sees one of its attorneys leaving the battlefield.
As reported by U.Today previously, senior trial counsel at the securities agency Dugan Bliss has left the SEC after working for it for over ten years. At the moment, he seeks the court’s permission to withdraw from working on the Ripple case.
