Tesla Building Powerful Litigation Team: Why They Are Doing It

Tesla is building a powerful litigation team and here is why they are doing it.

A Powerful Litigation Team - What They Will Do

Tesla is building a powerful litigation team, according to CEO (Techno King) Elon Musk. There are a few reasons that Tesla is doing this, but first, here is what the team will do.

The description for this team is as follows:

"Are you an experienced partner at a top law firm?

Do you enjoy handling sophisticated litigation and trials but are frustrated by internal issues like conflicts and passing on work for clients you love?

Tesla Legal is building something unique: a full-scale internal litigation and trial team that can handle all aspects of litigation and trial work, including briefings, hearings, discovery, depositions and trials, completely in-house.

Apply online and see if you qualify for a team that handles cutting-edge and sophisticated legal work itself with NO conflicts. Because we are one team with one mission: to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable Energy."

Elon Musk has said that Tesla will continue to use outside litigators, but it is important to build a powerful litigation team internally, so that Tesla is not always on the defensive. Tesla will go after Wall Street short-sellers, certain law firms and sometimes, corrupt regulators who are the true evil.

What will this team handle? First off, there was a case of a former Tesla employee who was awarded $3 million for mistreatment, though the exact details of what happened there are unknown. I think that isn't the real reason for this team.

I think the real reason for this team is for two reasons:

* Tesla Short Sellers
* Tesla FSD

First, Tesla short sellers put continuous pressure on Tesla's stock, driving it down.

Second, Tesla FSD is getting close to wide release and will eventually be out of its beta version. When that happens and every Tesla can use FSD, Tesla is going to have to be very careful and cover all their basis in the case of crashes or deaths.

Eventually, as much as I don't want to believe it, a Tesla using Autopilot or FSD is going to cause an accident. It's not a guarantee that this will happen, but more of a statistical probability. Even if it drives perfectly for 1 million miles, the next mile after that could be a corner case it couldn't handle, causing a crash, injury, or death.

Tesla is going to need to know how to cover themselves legally. They do a great job already with Autopilot and FSD, saying that the systems are not yet autonomous and that the drive must be ready to take over at any moment.

But, at some point, the software will show that it is ready to move beyond these constraints by having so many successful drives without interventions, that the conversation will move to self-driving vehicles.

This powerful litigation team, in my opinion, is a response to that.

Why do you think Tesla is making this powerful litigation team?
