Dana Hull and Josh Eidelson Bloomberg Published 9:02 p.m. UTC Jul 11, 2018 A former Tesla Inc. employee portrayed by Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk as a saboteur has filed a whistle-blower tip to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission alleging the company made misstatements and omissions to investors. Martin Tripp, a process engineering technician at the company’s massive battery factory in Nevada, who left Tesla on June 19 and was sued by the company shortly thereafter, accused the electric-car maker of inflating weekly Model 3 production figures by as much as 44 percent. In a tip filed to the SEC on Friday, he also said the company installed unsafe batteries in vehicles that may be at higher risk of catching fire later. Tripp’s allegations were summarized in a statement from Meissner Associates, a New York-based law firm that represented a former Monsanto Co. employee who was awarded $22 million in August 2016 for tipping off the SEC to improper accounting. … [Read more...] about Ex-Tesla worker blows whistle to SEC

By Dave Jamieson WASHINGTON ― In 2005, a group of workers at a meatpacking plant in Brooklyn voted to join a union. Their employer, a kosher meat wholesaler called Agri Processor, fought the organizing effort as best it could. Once the workers were unionized, the company refused to bargain, arguing that most of them weren’t covered by collective bargaining law because they were undocumented immigrants. Ultimately, neither the National Labor Relations Board nor the majority of judges on a panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit agreed with Agri Processor. The only one who did was Brett Kavanaugh, the circuit judge who wrote a dissent in the case and is now President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. … [Read more...] about Brett Kavanaugh Ruled Against Workers When No One Else Did
LOS ANGELES — Federal prosecutors say nine more Southern California doctors have been charged in a $950 million fraud scheme to bilk the government. The U.S. attorney's office said Thursday that the new defendants join other medical professionals and companies facing charges in the scam centered around Pacific Hospital in Long Beach. The hospital's former owner, Michael Drobot, was sentenced to prison this year. Officials say Drobot paid $40 million in kickbacks to doctors and other medical professionals who referred thousands of patients to his hospital for spinal surgeries. Some patients lived hundreds of miles away. Authorities say state and federal workers compensation insurers were billed hundreds of million dollars as part of the scheme over 15 years. … [Read more...] about 9 more charged in California hospital fraud scheme
Marlins Man got taken deep. A bookkeeper pleaded guilty this week to embezzling $1.5 million from South Florida lawyer Laurence Leavy, who often sits in the best seats at major sporting events nationwide bedecked in his bright orange Miami Marlins visor and jersey. The SunSentinel reports Maria Alonso pleaded guilty in federal court to issuing more than 1,000 fake checks to herself since 2009 and received a four-year sentence. She worked 17 years for Leavy. Leavy wears his orange getup to games, which makes him noticeable on TV. The workers compensation attorney often buys several of the best seats and then treats random fans, just asking them that they pay the good deed forward.
