The Virginia Automobile Dealers Association has called on state regulators to investigate and sanction Tesla Motors Inc. for what it calls “serious, systemic, and habitual violations” of state laws at its existing locations. This includes offering illegal test drives at a shopping-mall gallery. Tesla, unsurprisingly, is not taking it lying down. There is more on Autoblog here.

This comes on top of a lawsuit earlier this year by which the VADA sought to prevent Tesla from opening a second outlet, which it argues the manufacturer cannot do until next year. And last August teh state took issue with Tesla's referral scheme, arguing that it meant that unlicensed individuals were making money from trading in new cars.
