Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) suing former employee Martin Tripp for more than $167 million
Tesla is seeking more than $167 million in a lawsuit against former employee Martin Tripp, recent legal filings revealed.
In the lawsuit, which was filed by the electric car maker in June, Tesla alleges that Tripp, a former process engineer, had illegally exported data and made false claims to reporters, among other things.
Tripp had earlier claimed in a number of press interviews that Tesla engaged in poor manufacturing practices at its massive battery plant outside of Reno, Nevada, and that it may have used damaged battery modules in its Model 3 vehicles, posing a risk to drivers.
An interim case management report published on Nov. 27 reveals that Tripp’s attorneys aim to depose Tesla CEO Elon Musk and more than 10 people involved with the company. Tesla has refused to make Musk available and sought to limit the number of people deposed by Tripp’s defense team at the law firm Tiffany & Bosco.
