H. Peter Haveles, Jr., a partner in the Trial and Dispute Resolution Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the February 26, 2019 CNN article, "Elon Musk's SEC Fight: Here's What Could Happen Next."
"The judge has huge discretion," said Peter Haveles, partner in the trial and dispute resolution group at the law firm Pepper Hamilton.
Haveles predicted that the judge would likely fine Musk, but would steer clear of such a nuclear option for now.
"It is the first time [he broke the agreement]," he said. "It's not trivial, but it didn't have a dramatic market effect."
