The American electric car company demands to recognize the duties as illegal, and also to return the money paid.

Tesla has filed a lawsuit in the US court, demanding to cancel the requirement of the administration of President Donald Trump, which concerns the collection of duties on imported parts from China. Last year, the brand already demanded to abolish duties of 25%, but the court refused.

According to Bloomberg, referring to the materials of the court on international trade in New York, Tesla is demanding that the duties be declared illegal and reimbursed for the funds that were paid for the tariffs.

Robert Lighthizer is named the defendant in the case. The latter, in turn, declined to comment on the situation. Tesla notes that the duties are a significant blow.
