About the Lawsuit
Tesla and certain of its executives are charged with making materially false and misleading statements and/or failing to disclose material facts during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On August 7, 2018, Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated via Twitter that “[a]m considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured,” among other things, which sent Tesla shares soaring to $379.57. From August 9-14, 2018, news agencies reported a SEC probe into the tweets and that another comment by Musk regarding financial advisors being retained for the transaction, was not true. Then, on August 17, 2018, Musk conducted an interview lamenting his stress, demands and mindset.
On this news, the price of Tesla’s shares plummeted.
