Judge stays out of Elon Musk vs. SEC letter spat, for now

DETROIT (AP) — A federal judge is refusing to get involved in a spat between a lawyer for Tesla CEO Elon Musk and U.S. securities regulators, at least for now.

The fight began on Feb. 17 when Spiro sent a letter to Nathan accusing the Securities and Exchange Commission of trying to muzzle Musk because he’s a government critic.
