Elon Musk is currently embroiled in a legal dispute with a group of Dogecoin investors, and the case has taken a new twist. The attorney representing the plaintiffs in the lawsuit has accused Musk and his lawyer of employing unlawful tactics to intimidate and harass him and his clients. In a court filing, the attorney, Evan Spencer, alleged that Musk’s lawyer attacked his competence and disclosed a confidential letter between them to the media. Spencer believes that this is an attempt to discredit him and his clients.
The lawsuit against Musk claims that he defrauded investors while promoting Dogecoin. The plaintiffs argue that Musk engaged in insider trading and manipulated the cryptocurrency for personal gain. They present evidence of Musk’s ownership of a disputed wallet, citing a tweet he made in which he openly declared his acquisition of a significant amount of Dogecoin. The investors also accuse Musk of using tweets, paid influencers, and his appearance on “Saturday Night Live” to exploit Dogecoin, all while using wallets controlled by himself or Tesla.
The legal battle intensified when Musk sold approximately $124 million worth of Dogecoin in April, coinciding with his replacement of Twitter’s logo with Dogecoin’s Shiba Inu logo. The cryptocurrency experienced a 30% price spike shortly after the logo switch. These actions have raised suspicions and prompted investors to question Musk’s motives and potential impact on the market.
