Howard A. Fischer was quoted in a November 12, 2021 Reuters article "Examiner: Five legal questions raised by Elon Musk's unorthodox share sales". The article discusses 5 legal questions brought up by the Tesla's owner recently asking the Twitter Universe if he should sell 10% of his shares.
Mr. Fischer stated "If Tesla was a normal company, and Musk a normal executive, this kind of behavior would lead to a board rebuke or worse," But investors appear by now to accept Musk's "oddities," he added. Mr, Fischer also said if Musk had concealed the real reason for his sales that could arguably be a disclosure violation, but at the same time there was a lot of public information on his reasoning for the sales.
