"It is clear that Defendant Musk Tweeted materially false and misleading information regarding the Going Private Transaction to exact personal revenge and "squeeze-out" the short-sellers who had purportedly been badgering him for months", the complaint filed by Isaacs states.
As a result, Tesla shares jumped 11 percent, causing so-called short-sellers who have been betting on the stock crashing for years to lose millions.
Mr Isaacs said he had bought 3,000 Tesla shares on 8 August to cover his short position.
