A lawsuit alleging that a California Tesla factory is a “hotbed for racist behavior” and management — all the way up to CEO Elon Musk — has done nothing to stop the illegal racial discrimination can proceed, a judge has ruled.

Alameda County Superior Court Judge Noël Wise tentatively ruled on Wednesday that 6,000 current and former Black employees who have worked on the production floor at the factory since Nov. 9, 2016, can proceed with class-action status in a case alleging an intimidating, hostile, and offensive work environment at Tesla’s production facility in Fremont, about 40 miles south of San Francisco.
