Bloomberg legal reports on Tesla’s posttrial motions in the Northern District of California challenging a $137 million verdict, including a $130 million in punitive damages, in an employment case involving allegations of a hostile work environment.  The plaintiff, a Black man who worked in Tesla’s factory in 2015-2016, claims Tesla employees used racial slurs in his presence and Tesla did not do enough to stop it.  Given the huge disparity between the punitive damages and the compensatory award, it seems almost certain that the punitive damages will be reduced, either through posttrial motions or appeal.
