Tesla’s founder and CEO Elon Musk has lost a leading in-house litigator.
Adam Gabor Mehes has motioned his withdrawal In Musk’s $258 billion lawsuit relating to a Dogecoin insider trading case.
The lawyer had been on board for almost a year, actively participating in a wide variety of legal actions Musk was involved in.
Mehes’ departure comes as Tesla’s legal team added a new attorney to the team that is representing Musk in the lawsuit: Allison Huebert on Friday.
The court case claims Musk was part of a Pyramid scheme to back the cryptocurrency.
Musk has repeatedly denied allegations of market manipulation and insider trading involving the meme coin. A group of DOGE investors accuse him of leveraging his social media account to pump the coin after his appearance on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
