We had some indication Tesla and its former CEO Martin Eberhard had settled their lawsuit
after it just quietly went away last month
, but the electric automaker has now finally come out and confirmed as much, although it's not surprisingly still staying mum on any actual details. As you may recall, Eberhard had sued Tesla and its current CEO, Elon Musk, over a whole host of grievances, including that he was pushed out of the company, denied his severance package, and generally disparaged both in the public and within the company. For its part, Tesla then fired back with some harsh words of its own, saying that Eberhard's account was "fictionalized," "twisted," and "wrong." Both parties seem to now be doing their best to put all that behind them, however, and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has even go so far as to issue a statement saying that "without Martin's indispensable efforts, Tesla Motors would not be here today."
