  • Battle Between Elon Musk And Former Tesla Employee Turns Ugly

The lawsuit accuses Tripp of stealing confidential photos and video of Tesla's manufacturing systems and other trade secrets.

"As a result of these and other issues, on May 17, 2018, Tripp was assigned to a new role".

This news comes after a leaked memo made its rounds across the internet earlier this week with claims that a disgruntled employee had purposefully programmed Tesla's manufacturing line with the malicious intent of stymieing production. In an interview with the Washington Post on Wednesday, Tripp, said that he discovered "some really scary things" at Tesla, including batteries that had been punctured and could pose a threat to people installed in the company's cars. This week, the company filed suit in federal court in Nevada alleging former process technician Martin Tripp is the culprit, according to a report by CNBC.

Tesla wants money damages and an order stopping Tripp from obtaining or disclosing information. Police investigated the call and found that there was "no credible threat", Tripp says that he "never made a threat", and said that Tesla's claims are "insane".

Tesla also claims a friend of Tripp's phoned the company and said the man had plans to "shoot the place up", referring to the Gigafactory.

So in the brief time in which Tripp has been on Musk's radar as a potential threat, he's already facing a lawsuit from a multi-billion dollar company and accusations of being a potential mass-shooter.

Asked if Tripp was the employee Musk had suggested was behind the sabotage, Musk tweeted Wednesday, "There is more, but the actions of a few bad apples will not stop Tesla from reaching its goals". Last week, Tesla said it will cut its total staff by 9 percent as it strives for greater cost efficiency.

After revealing some of his evidence to outlets like Business Insider, Tripp is now seeking whistleblower protections and has changed addresses for his family's safety.

The Friday statement went on to say that Tripp "grossly exaggerated" the level of waste that he observed while at the Gigafactory.

The exchange had began with Mr Tripp saying: "You have what's coming to you for the lies you have told to the public and investors". "I'm a scapegoat because I provided information that is absolutely true", Tripp told The Guardian.

When it rains on Tesla it pours according to internal documents disclosed to Reuters.

"These decisions had a negative impact on our deployments but created a positive impact on our cash generation", Tesla said in its first-quarter letter to shareholders.
