SAN FRANCISCO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A federal judge has dismissed a securities fraud and defamation lawsuit filed by a Tesla investor against CEO Elon Musk, one of Musk’s and Tesla’s supporters.
In an order issued in California, Judge James Donato rejected the claim of investor Aaron Greenspan, who runs the legal documents website. Donato wrote that the lawsuit did not make convincing legal claims.
Donato had previously denied the case in June, but he offered Greenspan the opportunity to file another complaint on federal legal issues. The judge wrote that allegations of defamation under California law will be considered later. By order of Thursday, Donato rejected all of Greenspan’s work opened in 2020.
Among other things, the lawsuit alleges that Musk fan Omar Ghazi slandered Greenspan in a series of baseless tweets against him. Greenspan claimed the tweets were part of a campaign of 80,000 linked tweets praising Tesla and attacking critics.
Donato ruled that Greenspan did not provide evidence to support Gazi’s claims that he was acting as Tesla’s or Mask’s agent. Gazi had previously called the allegations “absurd” and Tesla’s lawyers had disputed Greenspan’s claims as conspiracy theories.
