Lawyers representing a group of Dogecoin investors who are suing Tesla CEO Elon Musk want the billionaire’s lawyers thrown out for misconduct, according to a new court filing in the case.
In a filing submitted to the federal court in Manhattan, the DOGE investor lawyers called on the judge to disqualify Musk’s attorneys for showing a pattern of “deprecating and oppressive misconduct” in the case.
“Trials should be litigated and defended by attorneys, not by yes-men,” the plaintiffs wrote. “Tesla is a publicly traded corporation whose CEO cannot unilaterally yoke its legal defense to his own purposes.”
The plaintiffs specifically point to a letter that was reported on by the New York Post on June 15 as proof of the defendants’ “dirty tactics”.
