Tesla voluntarily dropped its lawsuit against Alameda County "without any prejudice," according to documents filed with the California Court on Wednesday, local time, but the company did not provide any reason to abandon the lawsuit.Tesla sued Alamida County on May 9, when Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk (Elon Musk) was in a spat with Alamida County officials because the company's auto-manufacturing plant in Fremont, Calif. could not start.
In order to stop the spread of the epidemic, the local "local asylum" order came into effect in mid March. Alameda County officials have restricted all businesses except "basic businesses" and only allowed factories to carry out the most basic operations, such as processing wages. Tesla initially refused to enforce the ban, but then closed the plant on March 23.
Musk has criticized California's local asylum order, threatening to move the plant out of the state. A few days later, Tesla broke the ban and restarted production at the plant. Musk said publicly on twitter that he intends to stay in the factory with the workers and issue a "catch me if you want" provocation to local officials. Shortly after, Tesla's Nevada based super plant employees also received emails asking to return to work.
Alamida County officials later approved Tesla's re-opening plan, which seems to have eased somewhat. But Musk is still actively looking for new plant sites.
