Tesla wins dismissal of shareholder lawsuit over Model 3 production

(Reuters) - A federal judge in San Francisco has dismissed a lawsuit in which Tesla Inc shareholders accused the carmaker of misleading the public about the progress on production of its Model 3 vehicle.

In a decision made public on Monday, U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer said that while the plaintiffs claimed that Tesla fell short of its production goals, "federal securities laws do not punish companies for failing to achieve their targets."

Breyer said the plaintiffs have until Sept. 28 to amend their complaint.
