Tesla has filed a lawsuit alleging that EV startup Rivian Automotive persuaded employees recruited from Tesla to provide Rivian with Tesla’s trade secret information.

The electric automaker filed the suit against Rivian and several former employees in the Superior Court of California for Santa Clara County on July 17.

In total, 178 former Tesla employees have joined Rivian. Tesla says it caught the culprits using sophisticated electronic security monitoring tools.

Rivian denies the accusations, saying the alleged actions are “counter to Rivian’s culture, ethos and corporate policies.”
