A New Lawsuit Filed Against Tesla Over Alleged Privacy Breach
The car manufacturer Tesla could be facing a new lawsuit after it was discovered that staff members shared videos taken by cameras mounted on Tesla vehicles via an internal messaging platform.
A portion of the content is said to have been made into memes and sent among coworkers, according to persons familiar with the situation.
A Model Y Tesla owner and customer of the luxury automaker, Mr. Henry, brought a class action lawsuit against the business on April 7th as a result of the development.
Mr. Henry, a San Francisco resident, claims that workers of Tesla were allowed to view personal films captured by the cameras on his car and utilized them for their own amusement.
He is justifiably furious about the situation, as anyone would feel when their privacy and the privacy of their family are violated, according to his attorney, Mr. Jack.
Mr. Jack adds that Tesla needs to answer for misrepresenting the scope of their access into people’s life and that their activities have violated family privacy, which is protected by California law.
Several additional Tesla customers who share the same privacy worries have spoken out in favor of the case.
Tesla has not yet officially responded to the accusations as of the time of publication.
However, there is speculation that the business and its legal team may delay making a public comment on the incident given the legal difficulties other firms connected to CEO Elon Musk are currently facing.
