H. Peter Haveles, Jr., a partner in the Trial and Dispute Resolution Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the March 20, 2019 CNN article, "Elon Musk's SEC Fight Nears Its Moment of Truth."
It's not clear whether Nathan will grant that request. She doesn't have to say yes, and it typically requires unusual circumstances, said Peter Haveles, partner in the trial and dispute resolution group at the law firm Pepper Hamilton.
More likely, she'll decide to "keep things moving" and schedule a hearing, he said.
Haveles predicts that Nathan will ultimately be tough on Musk, especially because it's now clear that [Musk] had not requested pre-approval for a single tweet.
"Because it's a more repetitive course of conduct, I believe it will be a sterner penalty," Haveles said. He predicted a hefty fine and a clear reprimand that would communicate to Musk that he can't step out of line again.
