The automaker led by Elon Musk has in fact been sued by one of his clients on charges of violating the owners' privacy: the lawsuit, filed in the US District Court for the Northern District of California by Henry Yeh, a San Francisco resident who owns a Model Y, could soon spark a large potential class action lawsuit against the U.S. builder.
In fact, according to Reuters, several days ago some groups of Tesla employees would have shared privately, via an internal messaging system, sometimes highly invasive videos and images recorded by the cameras of customers' cars over the past four years. A clearly illegal behavior, given that, as also stated in the lawsuit, Tesla employees should not have been able to access the images and videos due to the "humiliation of those who were secretly recorded".
“Like everyone, Mr. Yeh was outraged that Tesla's cameras could be used to violate his family's privacy, which the California Constitution scrupulously protects,” said Jack Fitzgerald, a defense attorney representing the owner. of Model Y who filed the lawsuit against the American company – Tesla must be held responsible for these invasions and for misrepresenting its lax privacy practices to him and other owners of the company's electric cars”.
