Tesla to close a dozen solar facilities in nine states

This resulted in Tripp being reassigned to a new role in May of 2018, a move that the former employee reportedly expressed anger at.

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.

Martin Tripp is facing a lawsuit from his former employer Tesla for the alleged theft of gigabytes of confidential company data and allegedly making false claims to the media, a lawsuit filed in Nevada shows.

In addition, Tesla claims that Tripp has written a computer code for the regular export of Tesla data to third parties.

The lawsuit continues by stating that Tripp retaliated against Tesla using several different means, one of which was writing a piece of software to hack Tesla's Manufacturing Operating System (MOS), specifically used to extract sensitive data.

In an email to employees last week, Musk said that as Tesla has grown over recent years, there has been some resulting "duplication of roles and ... job functions that ... are hard to justify today".

But Tripp, who says he became a whistleblower after seeing what he called unsafe conditions in the company's auto batteries, told The Washington Post he had said no such thing. He added he has documents to support his claims.

Because of this, the company is suing him for $1m. The suit also indicated that Tesla had only begun to know the extent of Tripp's illegal activities leaving room to stipulate that more details would be revealed.

The closures come as a part of Tesla's decision last week to cut 9 percent of its workforce.

Tesla is seeking relief under the Defend Trade Secrets Act, in addition to Nevada's own trade secret statute.

According to Musk's email, the saboteur said his actions were a form of retaliation toward Tesla for passing him up for a promotion. Tripp, however, sees himself as something else: a whistleblower. Tripp admitted to speaking to the media, but only because he saw "some really scary things" inside the company.

Don't worry, you have what's coming to you for the lies you have told to the public and investors.

Tesla has not officially commented on Tripps claims of being a whistleblower; Tripp is now trying to secure counsel to represent him in the lawsuit. "Tripp also vastly exaggerated the true amount and value of "scrap" material that Tesla generated during the manufacturing process, and falsely claimed that Tesla was delayed in bringing new manufacturing equipment online".
