Elon Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla Inc., right, departs from court for the SolarCity trial in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., on Monday, July 12, 2021.
— Tesla CEO Elon Musk is heading back to court for a second day, and is likely to be questioned over the financial health of SolarCity in 2016 before Tesla acquired it for $2.6 billion.
The shareholders also allege that Musk controlled the board of Tesla, even though he appeared to recuse himself from some deal negotiations concerning SolarCity.
A typically confrontational Musk failed to answer attorneys' questions in a single day at the Delaware Court of Chancery on Monday during his roughly six hours on the stand.
If Elon Musk loses the lawsuit, he could have to pay upwards of $2 billion.
