Elon Musk Cites Free Speech In Defense Of SEC Case Against Him

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is trying to hold Elon Musk in contempt for a few tweets.

According to Automotive News, the SEC claims Musk violated earlier restrictions on his social media posts.

The SEC said his tweets were misleading and hadnโ€™t been vetted as required by an earlier order.

Musk is fighting against the claim, telling a New York federal judge his tweets werenโ€™t improper.

He defended himself by citing his constitutional right to free speech in Manhattan federal court.
