: Tesla’s Elon Musk to SEC: Stop trying to ‘muzzle and harass’

United States

Lawyers for Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk have accused the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission of going “beyond the pale” to “try to muzzle and harass” Musk and the electric-vehicle maker.

The allegations are in a letter filed Thursday to U.S. District Judge Allison Nathan, who presided over the SEC settlement after Musk’s famous “going private” tweet in 2018.
