Tesla Inc. has resolved the claims of six plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit filed against the company in California.

The complaint asserts numerous causes of action against the manufacturer, including products liability claims, breach of warranty claims, negligence, and violations of several consumer protection laws. The lead plaintiff also sought class action status citing several other instances of sudden acceleration in Tesla's vehicles.
