Jun 22 - Tesla worker rejects $15 million payout in race bias lawsuit

A judge slashed the original award of $137 million. Lawyers for Owen Diaz said the reduced award was unjust and would not deter future misconduct by Tesla.

A Black former elevator operator at Tesla’s flagship California a*sembly plant on Tuesday rejected a $15 million award in his lawsuit alleging racial abuse by coworkers, opening the door for a new trial after a judge slashed a $137 million jury verdict.

Lawyers for Owen Diaz, who had sued Tesla in 2017, turned down the judge’s award in a brief filing in federal court in San Francisco. They said in a statement that the award was unjust and would not deter future misconduct by Tesla.

“In rejecting the court’s excessive reduction by asking for a new trial, Mr. Diaz is again asking a jury of his peers to evaluate what Tesla did to him and to provide just compensation for the torrent of racist slurs that was directed at him,” his lawyers said.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

U.S. District Judge William Orrick lowered the jury award, which was one of the largest of its kind in a discrimination lawsuit, to $15 million in April. He had also denied Tesla’s motion for a new trial, conditioned on Diaz’s acceptance of the lower award.

Earlier this month the judge denied Diaz’s motion for permission to appeal that ruling and gave him two weeks to accept the lower award or agree to a new trial.

Tesla is facing a series of lawsuits involving alleged widespread race discrimination and s*xual harassment at its Fremont, California factory, including one by a California civil rights agency.

Last week, a Tesla shareholder filed a lawsuit accusing the company’s chief executive, Elon Musk, and board of directors of neglecting worker complaints and fostering a toxic workplace culture.

Tesla has denied wrongdoing and says it has policies in place to prevent and address workplace misconduct.

Diaz alleged that his colleagues and a supervisor subjected him to a hostile work environment that included slurs, caricatures and swastikas in his nine months working at the Fremont plant in 2015 and 2016.

A jury had awarded Diaz $6.9 million of compensatory damages and $130 million of punitive damages last October, but Orrick in April said those numbers were excessive.

Diaz’s lawyers in their statement on Tuesday said Orrick’s decision highlighted systemic bias that federal judges have against juries, which in turn violates the constitutional rights plaintiffs have to a trial by jury.

It was blatant acts of racism against him. The judge obviously has some sort of cognitive bias against people of color to completely change judgement.

White and light skinned people will NEVER understand the mental and spiritual destruction racism causes

NO ONE KNOWINGLY ASKS TO BE BROWN OR DARK BROWN IN A RACIST WORLD

I hope he gets more than he wants and I hope the coworkers who were racist to him and anyone who thinks he's complaining about nothing in the first place or thinks he is asking for too much gets k*lled in front of their family and that a lot of bullets hit their face

The evidence had to be overwhelming for him to be awarded $137M.

California is also suing Tesla for Racism that happened at that same facility to other employees.

No chance he gets 0 at the next trial.

Low-key, you sound like you hate the fact that you're darker, even if it's just due to the discrimination you face.

You need to phrase that better.

You sound like a slumped shoulder, low self esteem having bi*ch.

Yeah having strong, passionate opposition to racism due to personal experience and witnessing vicious, ignorant, remorseless racism means I hate myself.

Great detective work Sherlock Holmes.

I don't need to rehash examples of sh*t I've experienced and witnessed

I don't care about your judgement against me for how I feel or react to racists or people who take racism lightly

I mean that in the most disrespectful way possible
