    These dealers are just grasping at straws.

    Another example of wasted resources where the only beneficiaries will be the lawyers...

    I'm no lawyer, but I would think that if it came down to it I'm sure Tesla could easily incorporate a wholly own subsidiary that owns the retail location in Ohio and sign a contract with their parent company. These guys are so desperate. Sadly the only winners will be the lawyers.

    I think that is what the dealers are after. If you try and pull something like this then they will say that the Tesla stores are franchises.

    You don't play their game. Tesla is doing something different and they need to stick with that.
