CA: Tesla Wins Case Over Autopilot Crash

A California woman injured while using Tesla's Autopilot mode sued Tesla for a design defect in Autopilot and the car's air bags.  Tesla defended its product, stating that the user manual warned the plaintiff about using Autopilot on city streets, which is where the accident occurred.  A jury awarded the plaintiff $0 in damages, found that the air bags were not defective, and found that Tesla did not intentionally fail to disclose facts.  Reuters has the story.  Thanks to Nima Bencohen for the tip.
