The legal battle between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and a group of Dogecoin investors is heating up with accusations of harassment and questionable tactics. Evan Spencer, the lead attorney in the class action lawsuit against Musk, is filing a case in federal court in New York accusing the billionaire’s legal team of waging a “campaign of unlawful harassment”. The situation is becoming increasingly tense in this ongoing case.
Elon Musk accused of harassment by Dogecoin investors
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, finds himself once again immersed in the heart of a legal battle. This time, a group of Dogecoin investors accuses him of carrying out an “unlawful harassment campaign”.
Lead class action attorney Evan Spencer has deposit a filing this Thursday, in federal court in New York, alleging that Musk’s legal team is funding these unfair tactics through a “bottomless war chest.”
Evan Spencer has bolstered his demand that Musk’s lawyers be suspended from the case, accusing them of waging a campaign of harassment against him. According to him, the defendants are using their unlimited financial power to support these reprehensible tactics.
The controversy revolves around a letter written by Elon Musk’s lawyer, Alex Spiro, which was reported by the New York Post on June 15. In that letter, Spiro demanded the withdrawal of an amended complaint alleging that Musk secretly owned two wallets that sold millions of DOGE to manipulate the price of crypto. Musk’s attorneys have strongly rejected those allegations.
The legal battle intensifies: Musk strikes back!
On July 7, Elon Musk’s legal team responded by calling Evan Spencer’s request an “insult” and denying any disclosure to the New York Post. They also maintained that even if these accusations were true, they would not violate ethics rules.
In response, Spencer claimed he had no relationship with the Post reporter and that the leaked letter could only have come from Musk’s team or an agent acting on their behalf. He also pointed to a tweet from Musk touting the creation of a “hardcore litigation department” at Tesla.
” The misconduct of defense attorneys as described above is certainly consistent with Musk’s cruelty highlighted in these tweets.“, wrote Spencer.
Spencer suggests that more attacks on him are in the works, with defamation threats aimed at tarnishing his public reputation.
” Having managed to publish false statements about me in the media once before, the defense lawyers threatened and threaten to place this disparagement of me on the public record again“, we read in the file.
However, he provided no concrete evidence to support these claims, relying primarily on the Post article. As of now, Musk’s team has yet to respond to this latest accusation.
The legal battle between Elon Musk and Dogecoin investors continues to escalate. The court will have to decide these contentious cases and determine whether the charges against Musk are true. In the meantime, this case is attracting the attention of the crypto community who are closely following developments in this legal saga.
