Tesla Wins Dismissal of Massachusetts Car Dealers’ Suit

Tesla Motors Inc., the maker of Model S electric cars, won the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by Massachusetts auto dealers seeking to stop it from operating its own showrooms in the state.

A Norfolk Superior Court judge ruled against the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association, finding that a state law didn’t necessarily give dealers standing to pursue legal claims over manufacturer-owned stores.
