Chrysler LLC has filed a lawsuit in a Michigan court alleging supplier Johnson Controls Inc. charged inflated prices for batteries. The suit, filed last month in the Oakland County circuit court, is the latest sign of rising tension between Chrysler and parts suppliers since the auto maker was acquired by private-investment firm Cerberus Capital Management LP just over a year ago. Chrysler seeks more than $15 million in damages on the suit. The automaker alleged JCI has charged Chrysler for more lead that it actually put into batteries. It alleges JCI’s actions were “systematic and deliberate.”
