Investor sues Tesla alleging scheme to ‘burn’ short sellers

News					Tesla Semi ‘speed & agility’ praised by professional driver after electric truck encounter

"After deleting the initial accusation and tweeting an apology, Mr Musk has continued to republish his false and unsupportable accusation".

Mr Kennedy confirmed that Mr Unsworth was in a relationship with Woranan Ratrawiphukkun, a Thai woman who told Buzzfeed she was 40 and had been in a relationship with Mr Unsworth for seven years.

Left, editor of the Citron Research investment newsletter, alleges that Musk tried to "burn" short-sellers who borrow Tesla stock with hopes that the price will fall and they can replace the shares at a lower cost.

Mark Stephens, his lawyer, added: 'Just as we get a series of legal proceedings drafted, Mr Musk adds another libel to it.

Buzzfeed reported that Musk made further unfounded allegations against Unsworth in an email exchange with one of its reporters. It isn't where you'd go for caves, but it is where you'd go for something else.

He asserted that the city was "renowned for child sex-trafficking".

Musk initially apologized after facing a backlash over his unsubstantiated allegation.

Last week, Tesla sent out invitations to the debut at Grand Basel, and despite only offering a teaser of what will be on show, it was clear from early on that it would be a European debut for the new Roadster.

Mr Musk, 47, who had been watching the news unfold, had tried to develop a miniature submarine for the rescue, which he said would be small enough to fit the boys and swim them out of the cave one at a time.

It was show time Thursday for the 12 boys and their 25-year-old soccer coach who were trapped for nearly three weeks in a flooded cave in northern Thailand as they spoke at a public exhibition in one of Bangkok's largest malls.

Colin Kaepernick Nike ad riles President Trump
Meanwhile, Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL alleging that teams colluded to keep him out of the league. One Twitter user, Fiscal Freedom for CT, offered a tip on who Nike should choose as its next brand ambassador.

Musk has never said explicitly why he has leveled such astonishing claims against Unsworth, who was part of an global team that freed 12 young members of a soccer team and their coach from the Tham Luang cave complex.

Musk had volunteered to design a mini-submarine to extract the team, but it ultimately was not used.

All 12 boys of the Moo Paa (Wild Boars) Academy give all rescuers a wai during a royally sposored dinner at the Royal Plaza on Thursday to thank them for their rescue operation at Tham Luang cave.

The latest controversy follows weeks of erratic behaviour on social media.

"This appears to be a textbook case of fraud", law firm partner Michael Canty said in the release.

Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) last issued its earnings results on Wednesday, August 1st.

He also tweeted that he suffered from "great highs, bad lows and unrelenting stress".

Musk's tweet caused a financial firestorm with Tesla shares immediately skyrocketing by nearly 11 per cent, although in the coming days they lost a good part of what they had gained and tanked further after Musk's interview with the NYT.

"This is why I referred to "funding secured" in the August 7 announcement", he said, referring to his surprise tweet on that date that he was thinking about taking Tesla private.
