Tesla investor sues Elon Musk, claims tweets violate SEC settlement

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk and the board of the electric car company have been sued by a shareholder who accused Musk of violating his 2018 settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission over his Twitter use.

According to a complaint unsealed late Thursday in Delaware Chancery Court, Musk’s “erratic” tweets, including a post last May 1 that Tesla’s stock price was “too high,” and the failure of Tesla’s board to monitor his compliance with the SEC settlement have exposed shareholders to billions of dollars of losses.
