The financial markets regulator in February asked a judge to hold Elon Musk in contempt for violating a deal the regulator struck with the Tesla chief executive a year ago, which requires him to get the approval of the Tesla board of directors before tweeting anything that could "be material to investors". Some former SEC attorneys say the agency.
Attorneys argued for almost two hours before Nathan urged a settlement with Musk celebrating from a defense table.
A federal judge in NY has given Musk and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission until April 18 to rework an agreement governing how the CEO posts information about Tesla on social media. The portfolio manager for Tesla's largest shareholder after Musk said the CEO may better serve the company by being less outspoken.
Last September, the SEC sued Musk for a separate tweet on August 7 in which he said Tesla had.
Musk watched after saying outside court he has great regard for the justice system. On Twitter, company CEO Elon Musk warned that the price of the Full Self-Driving option will "increase substantially over time", with the first price hike starting May 1st.
The judge began hearing arguments at about 2 p.m.

But the Lighting couldn't muster any more, and Atkinson connected on an empty-netter with a minute left in the game. But what Hedman forgot about Nash was that he wasn't a member of the Blue Jackets during the 2017-18 playoffs.
A previous tweet regarding a strategy to take the company private contributed to the initial round of issues with the SEC.
Tesla shares (TSLA) fell as much as 1.7 percent to $263.03 as of 9:38 a.m. Monday in NY trading.
The federal judge Alison Nathan told Mr Musk: "Take a breath".
But it also goes to model availability - while Tesla have previously said (as noted by Parkinson) all Model 3 versions available in the U.S. will be made available in Australia - another big question has been when.
Nathan pushed Crumpton through the hearing to specify the conditions under which consent should be sought by Musk before he tweets, also attracted attention to ambiguity surrounding the principles that the SEC sought to apply. But the good news for potential Tesla owners is that they still have a few weeks to buy a Tesla with FSD onboard at the old price, and have the new hardware installed when it becomes available. That claim wasn't true, and sent Tesla's stock soaring initially.
