Rivian and Tesla Gets Deadlines From Judge for Stagnant Trade Secret Lawsuit

A California judge has added new deadlines to Tesla Inc.’s slow-moving court battle with Rivian Automotive Inc. over allegations of talent poaching and technology theft.

According to a tentative order issued Monday by a state court judge in San Jose, Tesla has 30 days to produce all of the documents it claims were stolen by several former employees who defected to its smaller electric vehicle rival. 

Following that disclosure, Rivian has 30 days to respond to Tesla’s long-standing requests for pretrial information sharing, including details on the steps Rivian took to investigate and respond following the alleged theft of trade secrets.

Following Tesla’s filing of the lawsuit in July 2020, the companies have accused each other of dragging their feet. Superior Court Judge Peter Manoukian stated that the deadlines imposed on both parties are “the best resolution for this important and interesting matter.”
