Attorney Claims Elon Musk Engaged in ‘Illegal Harassment Campaign’ in Dogecoin Lawsuit
The legal battle between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and a group of Dogecoin investors has escalated, with accusations of harassment and dirty tactics being thrown around. Evan Spencer, the lead lawyer in the class-action lawsuit against Musk, has called for the billionaire’s lawyers to be suspended from the case, claiming that they are financing an unlawful harassment campaign against him and his clients. Spencer’s accusations stem from a letter written by Musk’s lawyer, Alex Spiro, which demanded the withdrawal of an amended complaint alleging that Musk manipulated the price of Dogecoin. Musk’s legal team issued a rebuttal, calling Spencer’s request an insult and denying the allegations of leaking information to the media. Spencer, however, argued that the leaked letter could only have come from Musk’s team or someone acting on their behalf. He also suggested that further attacks on him were forthcoming. The legal battle between Musk and the Dogecoin investors began last June over allegations of a racketeering scheme involving the cryptocurrency. Musk denies any wrongdoing. The case is ongoing, and no further evidence has been provided to support the accusations of harassment and dirty tactics.
