Elon Musk, SEC get 1-week extension to resolve contempt dispute

Elon Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission are asking a Manhattan federal judge for more time to work out a resolution to their dispute about whether the Tesla Inc. chief executive should be found in contempt of court.

On April 4, Judge Alison Nathan ordered lawyers for Musk, Tesla and the SEC to take two weeks to hammer out an agreement among themselves. On Thursday, all parties jointly asked for their deadline to be extended by another week.

“While we have not reached an agreement, counsel for the SEC, Mr. Musk and counsel for Tesla met and conferred for over an hour by telephone earlier this week are continuing to discuss potential resolution,” they said in a court filing.
