“Like anyone would be, Mr Yeh was outraged at the idea that Tesla’s cameras can be used to violate his family’s privacy, which the California Constitution scrupulously protects,” Yeh’s attorney, Jack Fitzgerald, said in a statement to Reuters. Yeh wrote that he felt violated by the employees’ actions to share sensitive data taken from his car for the goal of “tasteless and tortious entertainment” and “the humiliation of those surreptitiously recorded.”On April 7, Reuters reported(Opens in a new tab) on claims made by nine former Tesla employees that team members were sharing personal video footage and images taken from internal car cameras across employee channels.
