Tesla Alleges Former Autopilot Manager Stole Company Secrets In Lawsuit

The drama is in high gear at Tesla today. The company has filed a lawsuit against its former Autopilot manager alleging that he stole company secrets. Anderson claims the lawsuit is "meritless" and that Tesla is just paranoid.

In a lawsuit filed today in California, Tesla lists six complaints against Anderson that basically all revolve around him allegedly breaking his contract and soliciting other Tesla employees to join him. Urmson and Aurora Innovation, the autonomous-drive company the two appear to have been trying to form together, are also named as defendants in the suit.
