Elon Musk Has More "Room For Improvement": Warren Buffett On Tweets Row

Musk had until Monday to explain why he shouldn't be held him in contempt of court over a tweet on February 19, published outside trading hours, which the SEC said violated a September settlement agreement with the unpredictable CEO. A US judge gave the two sides until April 18 to meet for at least an hour and resolve their differences.

The legal tussle for Musk, 47, served as a distraction amid a record decline in deliveries for Tesla during the first quarter.

The case of the sudden dip that placed the price of Tesla shares to the bottom point for the week, still seeing declines even days later with its latest trading session on Monday, April 15, is contributed to the news that Tesla Inc shared on the matter of their deal with Panasonic Corp.

Both the Panasonic and the next-12-months production tweets are noteworthy in light of the settlement that sprang from Musk tweeting in August of previous year about trying to take Tesla private. This past year, when he predicted a diver who assisted rescue 12 boys to a Thai soccer group from a cave Musk berated stock market analysts for asking questions regarding the financing of Tesla and motivated a defamation lawsuit a pedophile. The SEC accused the chief executive officer of securities fraud, and Musk settled. Rather, Musk and made other concessions to repay the situation and Tesla agreed to pay $40 million.

Musk, however, didn't provide a specific figure.

SEC lawyer Cheryl Crumpton recommended that U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan fine Musk if she finds him in contempt for violating a bargain with the SEC that requires him to apparent tweets that might disclose important business facts with lawyers. She wrote in an order the next day that if Musk is held in contempt, the court will allow further briefings on sanctions.

The order comes after Nathan urged both sides to agree at a hearing on Thursday in NY that Musk attended.
