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 hadn’t been vetted as required by an earlier order.

Musk is fighting against the claim, telling a New York federal judge his tweets weren’t improper.

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