  • The lawyer filed to appear on behalf of an Amicus Curiae.

Pro-XRP lawyer and the head representative of XRP holders in the SEC vs. Ripple lawsuit, John E. Deaton, has filed a Notice of Appearance to join the LBRY Inc. appeal case on behalf of an Amicus Curiae.

LBRY filed a notice to appeal the decision by the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire that found it culpable of failing to register with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a crypto asset securities issuer.

Reiterating Commitment to LBRY

According to a court document dated September 14, Deaton filed the Notice of Appearance on behalf of Amicus Curiae Naomi Brockwell. Brockwell is a tech journalist and the founder of publishing company Crypto Law, where Deaton is also listed as a founder.

Confirming the court filing on Twitter (X), the lawyer demonstrated unwavering support for LBRY in its appeal against the SEC’s win in court, saying, “Win, lose or draw, we will be in the fight!

Deaton doesn’t shy away from showing the public his support for LBRY. On January 31, he stated on his official Twitter account that he persuaded a judge to force the SEC to commit to the record that the LBRY Credit (LBC) itself is not a security.

The Crypto Advocate

A former marine turned class-action lawyer, Deaton rose to prominence when he began advocating for XRP holders in the ongoing Ripple-SEC legal circus. 

Recently, on Twitter, the lawyer criticized Senator Elizabeth Warren and SEC Chair Gary Gensler, accusing them of “not pivoting from their anti-crypto agenda.”

Deaton was responding to a recent development involving Senator Warren adding nine new cosponsors to her anti-crypto bill, including Homeland Security Chair Gary Peters.
