Elon Musk wrapped up two days of testimony in a Delaware trial over Tesla Inc.’s 2016 takeover of SolarCity, continuing to argue that the purchase was a sound decision and that it wasn’t done to benefit himself instead of shareholders.

Musk, the first and most central witness in the case, sparred repeatedly with opposing lawyer Randy Baron over the course of about eight hours on the witness stand, at one point telling him he was “bad human being” and saying his questions were “deceptive.”
