On Tuesday Martin Tripp, a former employee at Tesla’s Gigafactory, filed a countersuit against the company. He alleges that Tesla is not living up to its mission to improve the environment, and instead is generating “large quantities of waste and ‘scrap’ vehicle parts lying haphazardly on the ground inside the Gigafactory.”
Tesla sued Tripp in June after Tripp leaked internal documents to Business Insider.
Tesla also alleged that Tripp hacked into the company’s manufacturing operating system, systematically transferred data off its network to third parties, and made false claims to the media regarding waste and quality issues at the company, all of which Tripp denies.
Tripp now alleges that Tesla made false statements about him around the time of the lawsuit.
