According to court documents, electric carmaker Tesla Inc has won its case against a former employee, who was fired for hacking and transferring company data to third parties.
In 2018, Tesla had filed a lawsuit against Martin Tripp, a former employee who worked at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Nevada, claiming that he had admitted to writing software that hacked the Tesla’s manufacturing operating system, had transferred several gigabytes of data to third parties, and for making false claims to the media.
In its ruling, the U.S. district court of Nevada said, it will grant Tesla’s motions to seal “because compelling reasons support them, and they are unopposed.”
The court denied Tripp’s motion for leave to file an additional reply saying it as “unnecessary”.
Neither Tesla, Tripp nor the law firms representing the case immediately responded to requests for comments.
