Musk sues county and threatens to move Tesla out of California in lockdown row

Musk announced he plans to move Tesla to either Texas or Nevada — after the carmaker was told it could not reopen by California officials.’Frankly, this is the final straw,’ Musk tweeted. ’Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately.’Musk also said that Tesla is suing Alameda County, whose officials prohibited the opening despite statewide easing of lockdown measures

Any successful business moving out of Cali to a more deserving state is good news in my opinion.

People that are at high risk or have family members who are at high risk: shelter in place. Everyone else: get back to work. Seems pretty simple, not sure why politicians can't figure it out.

This is positive news. Why put up with the bullshit socialist policies of Commiefornia when you can move operations to Texas.

Then relocate it, any major company should know how often the Democrats in California flip flop on anything. California has great tempature sure, yet the snobbish elite want to live there, confining themselves to their gated communities as the poor and impoverished flood and sleep in the California city centers.

Musk and other opponents of government mandates do have a point. The basic question regarding stay at home and shelter in place orders is whether the ends justify the means. Is containing the virus worth giving every level of government blanket authority to restrict your constitutional rights? I'm having a hard time choosing between principle and pragmatism. I lean towards allowing businesses reopen with restrictions.

His chance of bringing a successful lawsuit is slim. You can’t sue a state for doing what is mandated in the Constitution during a public health crisis. Read it, find out the truth. Don’t trust what a disgruntled person has to say, without verification.

You dumbasses putting California down. 5th or 6th largest economy in the world, but they’re doing it wrong. Yeah. And Musk is a POS. He can leave society asap...

I am sure he would love to leave Cali. Yet he is too entrenched at the moment to make a break. The county needs to attempt to work with him but they have no real understanding of the damage they are causing.

This is nothing but good news. There is a complete overgrowth of power in California with big-tech, and their biases leech into fucking everything they do. There needs to be balance, and there is absolutely nothing.

Why put Tesla in Calif. In the first place? Do you want real engineers or a bunch of whiny, woke employees?
