Elon Is Preparing for Battle With ‘Hardcore’ Lawyers – Opinion

Elon Musk said that when he announced that he was going to vote Republican, he did so because he knew the Democrats were coming after him. Then the next day, Business Insider dredged up an old sexual harassment allegation that had been resolved against him, not even citing the ‘accuser’ but rather the declaration of a friend of hers. Musk responded immediately that it wasn’t true, challenged the accuser to describe a part of his anatomy not known to the public and even joked that he had the perfect name for the ‘scandal’ —- Elongate.

Musk also called the “friend” whose story the Business Insider relied on “a far left activist/actress in LA with a major political axe to grind.”

However, Musk is not stupid and he must figure that more is on the way because it sounds like he’s preparing for a throwdown. He’s now announced he’s putting together a hardcore litigation team and he tweeted, asking for applicants.

“Tesla is building a hardcore litigation department where we directly initiate & execute lawsuits. I will be reporting directly to the team.

You can send up to five bullet points detailing evidence of extraordinary ability.

This is my commitment

– We will never seek victory in a just case against us, even if we will probably win.

– We will never surrender/settle an unjust case against us, even if we will probably lose.

Include links to any cases that you’ve tried

We are looking for streetfighters who will fight to the death, and not lawyers with white shoes like Cooley or Perkins who love corruption.

There will be blood.”

He got some responses including people recommending our Townhall colleague Kurt Schlichter.

Schlicter gave a very Schlichter-like response.

Ted Frank was the Director of Hamilton Lincoln Law Institute. He sounded intrigued.

Musk may also be subject to hate spam by the left due to his use of that email address.

But in addition to being personally attacked, he’s seen his company be removed from the S&P 500 ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) index, while Exxon is still there, in the top ten. Tesla was allegedly removed due to “flaws” in the company’s “business conduct” and “aspects of the company’s low-carbon strategy” — a wild take, given how his company sells electric cars. What is the point of a low-carbon strategy? Translation: we don’t find you sufficiently woke.

Musk’s conclusion is likely right that he needs back-up not only for himself but for his company, given the actions he’s seeing and is likely to see.

But it’s good to see that he gets it, is sticking to his guns, and is preparing.
