“Tesla is resuming production against Alameda County’s rules today. I’ll be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arrested, I just ask,” he said this Monday. Elon musk via your Twitter account.
With this announcement, Tesla’s founder resumed production despite the ban on Alameda County, California, which was quarantined due to COVID.
On Saturday evening, Tesla filed a lawsuit against Alameda County with the United States District Court in San Francisco after the local Department of Health refused to restart Fremont’s factory in the city.
The billionaire said, “I’m not playing.” In the lawsuit, Tesla claimed that the factory must be involved in the reopening of the essential government guidelines by the California government because the plant is “a critical national infrastructure”.
On Twitter, Musk found that California approved the reopening, but an unelected district official illegally canceled Tesla’s return. “All other car companies in the US are approved for resumption. Only Tesla was selected,” he said on the social network, where he also threatened to move his headquarters to Texas or Nevada.
