According to a recent tweet by James K. Filan, a defense lawyer who follows the Ripple v. SEC case, the regulator has been ordered by Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn to submit all of its suggested redactions for in-camera review. The SEC is expected to do that before April 8.

Ripple, in turn, stated that it was not challenging any of the proposed redactions, but it reserved the rights to the notes.

In the meantime, experts suggest that while the network’s transaction fees spiked to $9.8 billion in 2021, Ethereum will generate even more fees in 2022, aiming at around $12 billion by the end of the year.
