A federal judge ruled on Wednesday that Elon Musk’s SpaceX must comply with a Department of Justice subpoena for the company’s hiring records.
“Respondent SpaceX is ORDERED to comply in full with the subpoena within 21 days,” U.S. judge Dolly Gee wrote in the order.
Gee’s court reviewed the case over the past two months, following SpaceX’s objection in April to the recommendation by another federal judge that the company should be forced to comply with the subpoena.
The court’s recommendation in March stated there are “several” federal investigations into the company, and rejected SpaceX’s argument that the subpoena constituted “government overreach.“
SpaceX did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
