Virgin Hyperloop One claimed to change the commercial public transit landscape. Based on a notion first proposed by Elon Musk in 2013, the company’s leading technology uses linear electric motors to push a magnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube at speeds of up to 760 miles per hour.
The technology is similar to the maglev bullet trains that are in Japan. However, Hyperloop’s bold vision for the advent of mass transit received a slew of high-profile court cases and a variety of wrongdoing at various levels of management within the firm. Brogan BamBrogan, Hyperloop’s former CTO, and three other former workers sued the firm in 2016, alleging that it had broken various labor laws and violated its statutory duty.
During his time at the corporation, BamBrogan also claimed he was subjected to defamation, abuse, and emotional distress. Hyperloop countersued, saying that BamBrogan and the other three plaintiffs were part of a botched takeover attempt.
