Tesla threatened to sue Alameda County, California and move to Texas or Nevada

In a series of previous tweets on Saturday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk also threatened to move the company’s headquarters to Texas or Nevada, where the protection rules in place are not too strict.

“Frankly, this is the final challenge. Tesla will now immediately move its headquarters and future programs to Texas / Nevada,” Musk tweeted. Tesla did not respond to requests for comment on Saturday.

“This has been a joint effort, in good faith to develop and implement a safety plan that allows it to be reopened while protecting the health and well-being of thousands of employees traveling to and from work at the Tesla plant,” the Alameda Health Department responded on Saturday in a statement to CNN Business. “The team at Tesla has been responsive to our guidelines and recommendations, and we hope to reach agreement on an appropriate safety plan soon.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom has published new guide Thursday allowing manufacturing companies to reopen, allowing each country to enforce tighter rules. Alameda County shelter-in-place rules expire on May 31. Texas establishes a May 18th for producers to continue limited operations, while Nevada many permitted retailers and businesses are not essential to reopen Saturday.

“We’ve worked with [Tesla]”But we haven’t given the green light,” Alameda County Health Officer Erica Pan said at the town hall Friday. We have not said it is appropriate to move forward. “

The Tesla lawsuit, which was filed late Saturday in a federal court in the Northern District of California, requested a permanent court order prohibiting the district from enforcing order to take cover. The company said it believes they are excluded because its operations are included in the definition of critical infrastructure.

Tesla owns a battery factory, called Gigafactory 1, in Sparks, Nevada, but has no trace in Texas. In February, Musk take the Twitter poll ask his followers if there should be a Gigafactory in Texas. The result is 80% positive.

On Saturday, Musk also encouraged Tesla shareholders to file a class action suit against the county for any lost money given that Tesla competitors in other countries could resume their operations earlier. He said that Tesla should be allowed to reopen because he learned how to deal with Covid-19 through his factory in Shanghai, China, which is currently the only factory operating the company.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz from Texas tweeted Saturday“Come to Texas! We will welcome Tesla HQ in Texas. We really like jobs & Texas people are eager to open & return to work (while staying safe & following sound science). We make a lot of cars & trucks in Texas, and we will love more !! “
