Tesla's ex-worker found guilty of leaking data

American electric vehicle and clean energy company Tesla Inc won its case against Martin Tripp, its ex-worker who was charged for hacking the company’s data and giving the information to third parties.

According to the court documents, "Tripp authored hacking software and placed it onto the computer systems of three other individuals at the company so that confidential Tesla data could be persistently exported off its network from these other systems to unknown third parties."

In its lawsuit, Tesla outlined five claims for relief, including violations described in the Defend Trade Secrets Act, the Nevada Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and the Nevada Computer Crimes Law.
