A judge decided to deny an attempt to keep a lawsuit against Ripple in California.
The case was brought forth by XRP investor Ryan Coffey who claimed that Ripple Labs and CEO Brad Garlinghouse have violated a few securities laws via the company’s sale of XRP.
It seems that Coffey tried to keep the case in California instead of having it tried in federal court. Now, the effort was eventually denied.
As expected, Ripple’s lawyers argued that the case should be dismissed to that it could be moved to federal court under the Class Action Fairness Act which allows federal courts to preside over some wide-ranging class-action lawsuits.

The New York-based firm says it “represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation.”
The company also stated that it is preparing “a class action lawsuit to recover losses suffered by purchasers of Ripple’s XRP tokens.”
