Judge to Hear Elon Musk Request to Relocate Trial Over Tesla Tweets

Court proceedings over the Tesla boss’s 2018 comments about taking the car maker private are due to start next week

A federal judge is slated to hear Elon Musk’s request to relocate a coming securities fraud trial involving comments he made as boss of Tesla Inc.

Attorneys for Mr. Musk argued in a filing last week that potential jurors in the trial scheduled to unfold in San Francisco could be biased against the billionaire over his use and recent management of Twitter. U.S. District Judge Edward Chen is due to hear both sides starting Friday morning.
