Investors say Musk should refund $9.4 billion to Tesla for SolarCity deal

A Delaware judge should order Elon Musk to repay $9.4 billion to Tesla for the benefits he received by pushing the electric-vehicle maker in 2016 to buy an ailing solar company he partly owned, according to Tesla investors in a court filing late Friday.

The investors said a “simple and practical” way to undo the benefits they say Musk improperly received from the $2.6 billion deal for SolarCity would be to order the chief executive to return the Tesla shares he received for his stock in the rooftop solar company.
