Tesla CEO Elon Musk wants to keep his ex-girlfriend Grimes and the alleged acquaintance with Azealia Banks from the official records of a lawsuit for his "420" verdict that overthrew the SEC on him. In an attempt to subpoena both Grimes and Banks, Musk's lawyer met with fierce opposition, accusing the plaintiffs of sensitizing the case.
As you may recall, although Musk had the appearance that he "was considering taking Tesla for $ 420," adding, "Financing secured."
The Weed Culture Initiates recognized the nod of the official time of day for achieving high value, and soon Instagram entries by Azealia Banks followed. She claimed that she had stayed with him at the time Grimes invited her that he was high at the time of the tweet and that the stock price was chosen as a clumsy joke to impress his girlfriend.
Questions also about the actual existence of funds, the wisdom to announce such an important thing on Twitter without telling the board, and so on, which leads to actions by the SEC and the shareholders. As part of a lawsuit filed by the latter, the plaintiffs sought to summon Banks and Grimes (real name Claire Elise Boucher), who they said had provided relevant evidence. Dean Kristy, the lawyer of Musk, resigned in a contradiction.
He initially complains that the plaintiffs did not follow the procedure, but suggests that Grimes is uninvolved and Banks is a "rapper" (in the shadows) and a crank. Here is the relevant excerpt:
In addition, Mr. Musk's then girlfriend (who has never worked for Tesla) has a target audience and, according to reports, a "rapper" based on the article submitted to the plaintiff has a "History of the bold and sometimes unconfirmed claim" is a "veteran of long and nonsensical beef [and has] who were confused with anyone from Sarah Palin to Nick Cannon" and was "banned" by Twitter (see Pl. Exs. A B) It is easy to see that this is more an attempt to sensationalize these procedures than a serious and legitimate attempt to keep first-hand "electronic documents" from third parties with knowledge of important facts.
A History of the Biggest Banks There followed hits on social media that I do not have to summarize here.
Not only that, but there's no evidence, Kristy wrote that Grimes, Banks or the media mentioned would probably reject relevant evidence (Gizmodo, for example, does not go over his post in the whole thing, which is undoubtedly always still gets traffic), which is why the application should be rejected.
I can not say whether the plaintiffs will succeed in officially including the parties involved: but it seems clear that they were at least unofficially involved . Whether this ultimately constitutes an advantage or an obstacle to their case is also in the air.
