FRANKLIN, WI (WTAQ) - Tesla Motors has agreed to pay $127,000 to a suburban Milwaukee doctor and his lawyer, to cover the cost of an allegedly defective luxury car.

Robert Montgomery of Franklin filed suit under Wisconsin's Lemon Law -- which sets up a procedure to obtain refunds or replacements for defective new vehicles.

In his lawsuit, Montgomery and Lemon Law attorney Vince Megna alleged that the doctor's 2013 SP Tesla sedan was in a shop for more than 30 with various issues.

The case was transferred from state court to federal court in May. The two sides then got together and reached a settlement last month.

A federal court recently approved it. Montgomery received enough to cover the costs of his vehicle, plus taxes and legal fees.
