Ripple (CRYPTO:XRP) has achieved notable partial victories in its ongoing legal battle with the SEC, which began in December 2020.

The SEC accused Ripple of illegally raising over $1.3 billion through unregistered securities offerings by selling XRP.

Judge Torres ruled last year that Ripple's programmatic sales to secondary trading platforms do not constitute investment contracts, causing XRP's price to surge by over 70%.

The potential penalties remain disputed, with the SEC proposing $102.6 million, while Ripple argues for a maximum of $10 million.

The case is currently in its final stages, but a resolution could still be delayed due to the complex legal proceedings. Some predict a possible agreement by the end of July.
