The commission is still arguing that the Hinman emails and documents are privileged even after losing assertions multiple times. The SEC mentioned that it wants to keep the emails from public view otherwise it would be “foreclosed” from making “such argument” in the future.

As per the filing, the commission produced these crucial internal documents after the judge denied the SEC’s objections. The watchdog claimed that the memos were protected by the deliberative process or attorney client privileges.

However, the SEC is still maintaining that the Hinman speech Documents are protected by the earlier mentioned privileges. It added that the clear lack of relevance of these documents to the Summary Judgement motion should be weighed against the impact.

The SEC highlighted that the release of these documents would not affect their ongoing deliberations on a wide variety of issues. These documents reflect internal discussions and deliberations by several SEC officials.
