Alleged Musk Impersonator Says ‘Goofy’ E-Mail Doesn’t Merit Suit

 

A former oil services firm executive accused by Tesla Motors Inc. of impersonating Elon Musk in an e-mail says the carmaker’s lawsuit should be thrown out because his message was too “goofy” to be believed.

The self-described critic of Tesla’s financial performance also alleged that the company went too far after receiving the e-mail — and then illegally hacked his Twitter account the next day to try to learn his identity.

Todd Katz, who says he quit his position as chief financial officer for Quest Integrity Group LLC within a week of Tesla’s September lawsuit, asked a California state judge in San Jose Wednesday to throw out the case because there are no grounds to accuse him of a “credible impersonation” of Musk or of trying to acquire Tesla’s inside information.
