  • A French metal supplier says Tesla hasn't paid for $1.7 million in parts.
  • Lebronze alloys filed a lawsuit for the overdue payments in court on Tuesday. 
  • It's not the first time suppliers have said Tesla has balked on agreements. 

Tesla owes roughly $1.77 million in overdue payments, a French metal supplier alleged in a new lawsuit filed Tuesday.

According to court documents, Lebronze Alloys has supplied a metal part for Tesla's electric motors since 2016. However, efforts to collect the €1,559,420.06 (approximately $1,768,460.32) that the company owes have been unsuccessful, the company said in the lawsuit.

"LBA made numerous efforts to get Tesla to pay the amounts Tesla owed to LBA. LBA convened meetings, sent e-mails and letters, and initiated numerous telephone calls in an effort to get Tesla to pay what it owed, to answer any questions Tesla may have had, and to resolve any issues," the lawsuit, filed in California's Northern District reads. "In addition, LBA demanded reasonable assurances of performance by Tesla."

Tesla did not respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
