A Tesla driver claims the company broke a promise to provide free charging of the electric vehicle for life by imposing a fee on people who leave their car at the charging station too long.

Kevin Shenkman sued Tesla Inc. in California state court and is seeking to represent all early Tesla adopters to recover their costs, as well as punitive damages and an order stopping Tesla from imposing the fees.
