Yuga Labs, the creator of the well-known NFT project Bored Ape Yacht Club, and NFT artist Ryder Ripps are still engaged in legal conflict.

A federal court in California ordered the deposition of Wylie Aronow and Greg Solano, two of Yuga Labs' founders, because they are not apex witnesses.

A person who agrees to be questioned and then provides an account in a deposition before a trial. Ripps, one of the lawsuit's defendants, is now claiming on Twitter that Aronow won't be providing a deposition in court.

As stated in the statement, Yuga's Motion significantly fails to live up to these standards. The depositions were announced on December 15, 2022, with dates of January 9 and 11, 2023. Yuga's argument that it was unable to submit a motion on time with regular notice is without merit.

It might have offered a standard motion with a time-saving application back in December. It was almost difficult for the Court to make a decision prior to the January 9 Aranow deposition since Yuga requested relief two business days earlier.

In June 2022, Yuga Labs filed a lawsuit, alleging that Ryder Ripps had violated Yuga's intellectual property by utilizing knockoff NFTs. Each NFT is designed to be unique, so Ripps recruited legal counsel and filed a counterclaim, contending that they cannot be duplicated.
