Tesla withdraws its lawsuit against Alameda County in California


early May Tesla sued Alameda County in California for not allowing them to open their California facilities Fremont. However, on Wednesday the company voluntarily dropped the charges.

The car company decided to take legal action against the district authorities because they were acting against the governor’s instructions when they did not allow them to resume operations at their Fremont plant.

California Governor Gavin Newsom gave the companies permission to reopen their doors, but made it clear that this decision is up to the communities.

Elon musk broke out in Twitter when local authorities did not allow him to reopen his factory on May 8th, and even threatened to remove the plant from that city and move it to Nevada or Texas.
