SEC Lawyers Resign After Judge Blasts Agency in DEBT Box Crypto Case – Bloomberg

Two Securities and Exchange Commission lawyers resigned after a federal judge sanctioned and sharply rebuked the Wall Street regulator for “gross abuse” of power in a crypto case.

Michael Welsh and Joseph Watkins stepped down this month after an SEC official told them that they would be terminated if they stayed, according to people familiar with the matter. The pair were lead attorneys on a case against Digital Licensing Inc., a crypto platform known as DEBT Box.
