Elon Musk tweeted on Saturday that he is going to sue Alameda County and move future operations out of California after a dispute over whether the company can reopen its factory there.
Musk has been clashing with regulators over local shelter-in-place orders meant to slow the spread of Covid-19.
Unlike other automakers, Tesla’s employees are not part of a union, so it would be easier for the company to significantly alter its operations.
He also claimed that: “Tesla knows far more about what needs to be done to be safe through our Tesla China factory experience than an (unelected) interim junior official in Alameda County.”

Careful Elon, California is one of your biggest markets in the US.
Piss off California and you might find that the laws that prevent you from direct sales of your cars in other states, all of a sudden get passed in California as well.
Not to mention your solar tile roof business.
And maybe SpaceX runs into a bit of regulatory difficulty, as well.
Oh? You think you can compensate for your losses by cozying up to China?
Look how well that has played out for the supply chains of other US industries.
