H. Peter Haveles Jr., an expert in SEC matters who is a partner at law firm Pepper Hamilton, said he thinks Musk will retain his CEO seat. "Likely the judge will issue some very strong words and warnings about what will happen next time," Haveles said, referring to U.S. Southern District of New York Judge Alison Nathan.
