Elon Musk and Mark Cuban Collaborate to Oppose SEC Trial Tactics


The SEC v. Jarkesy case, in which George Jarkesy claims that his Seventh Amendment rights were infringed, serves as the backdrop for the legal challenge.

CryptoCaster Quick Check:

In order to express their disapproval of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) strategy of conducting internal hearings without the participation of juries, Elon Musk, Mark Cuban, and others jointly filed a joint amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court.


Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, who recently rebranded Twitter into X and wields influence and controversy in crypto, and Mark Cuban, a billionaire cryptocurrency investor and proponent of decentralized finance (DeFi), both contend that these administrative proceedings result in different outcomes for people who are facing SEC charges. As a result, this strategy has sparked worries about a potential violation of the Seventh Amendment right to a jury trial in the United States Constitution.

The SEC v. Jarkesy case serves as the backdrop for this legal dispute. George Jarkesy claims that in this particular instance, his rights under the Seventh Amendment were infringed. He contends that these rights are violated by 😒 the SEC’s internal adjudication procedure, which is judged by an administrative law judge chosen by the commission without a jury. As a result, one organization essentially serves as the judge, jury, and enforcer.

According to Musk, Cuban, and other amici curiae, the SEC’s strategy changed between 2013 and 2014. The SEC began handling more cases internally rather than through federal courts, they noticed. After a number of unsuccessful insider trading jury trials, this adjustment was made.


Musk is engaged in his third significant court battle with the finance watchdog. This follows previous lawsuits from 2018 and 2019. In order to obtain Musk’s testimony about his purchase of Twitter, the regulatory body is currently pursuing the involvement of a federal court, with a focus on his public statements about the deal, as revealed in legal records.

The amici curiae, however, continue to hold to their unwavering stance, asserting that choosing administrative proceedings over the option of federal court jurors goes against the SEC’s declared goal. Furthermore, such choices might have a bad effect on investors and the markets that the SEC is devoted to defending.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
