United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sent a letter to Tesla Board Chairman Robyn Denholm raising concerns that its Board of Directors has failed to meet its legal responsibility to protect Tesla and uphold its fiduciary duty to shareholders from actions by Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk in the aftermath of his purchase of Twitter.
“Your legal responsibility is to serve as a prudent fiduciary for shareholders and to oversee the management of [Tesla’s] business. That responsibility includes ensuring that Mr. Musk is an effective CEO and that he fulfills his legal obligation to act in the best interests of Tesla and all of its shareholders, not just himself,” wrote Senator Warren “The fact that Mr. Musk was, until recently, the world’s richest man does not absolve him of those legal responsibilities or provide assurances that he will meet them.”
