Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse Disclaims Sealing A Deal with U.S. Attorney Kyle Roche: Details


Recommended Posts

Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, the San Francisco-based cross-border payment firm, has disclaimed an allegation leveled against him in a recent CryptoLeaks blog post.

It was alleged in the blog post that Garlinghouse made a deal with United States Attorney Kyle Roche, the founder of a law firm named Roche Freedman, to sue competitors in the crypto industry.

Alleged Deal Between Brad Garlinghouse and Kyle Roche

In the blog post titled “Ava Labs (Avalanche) attacks Solana & cons SEC in evil conspiracy with bought law firm, Roche Freedman”, it’s said that before Kyle Roche established Roche Freedman and made a pact with Ava Labs, he was a relatively lowly associate at Boies Schiller Flexner, a law firm representing Ripple in the ongoing XRP lawsuit with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

CryptoLeaks stated that Roche Freedman's founder proposed to Garlinghouse that he has created a new law firm that would specialize in suing others in the crypto industry with similar tactics that were being used against Ripple.

The blog post reads in part:

“Kyle asked that Brad become his angel investor, and curiously Brad agreed — one might have expected he would want to see less of this kind of litigation across the industry.

“For whatever reasons Brad Garlinghouse invested in Kyle Roche, and supported him on his current path, it certainly didn't save him from the SEC. Ripple's current travails might be a bad omen for Emin Gün Sirer.”

Brad Garlinghouse Disclaims the Allegation

Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, who joined several others to discredit the claims, said he can boldly say that he has never met or had any discussion with Kyle Roche, let alone sealing such a ridiculous deal with the U.S. attorney.

Brad Garlinghouse tweeted, “Can’t comment on the validity of the slew of allegations in here, but I can unequivocally say that I have never met or spoken to (much less invested in) Kyle Roche.”
