    Elon Musk

    The Agreement

    California, United States
    Tuesday Feb 19, 2019

    On 19 February 2019, Musk stated in a tweet that Tesla would build half a million cars in 2019. The SEC reacted to Musk's tweet by filing in court, initially asking the court to hold him in contempt for violating the terms of a settlement agreement with such a tweet, which was disputed by Musk. This was eventually settled by a joint agreement between Musk and the SEC clarifying the previous agreement details, in which agreement included a list of topics that Musk would need preclearance before tweeting about.
