Musk trial over Tesla-Solarcity deal postponed due to coronavirus outbreak

WILMINGTON, Del (Reuters) - Monday’s trial over shareholder accusations that Telsa Inc Chief Executive Elon Musk pushed the electric vehicle maker to buy an allegedly worthless SolarCity for $2.2 billion to benefit himself has postponed without a new date being set, a spokesman at Delaware’s Court of Chancery said on Friday.

A lawyer involved in the case said the trial was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
