LOS ANGELES – Tesla CEO Elon Musk will have to go to trial to protect himself from catching a British diver as a pedophile in a verbal sparring match that unfolded last summer after the underwater rescue of youth soccer players trapped in a Thailand cave.
A federal chief judge in Los Angeles, October 22, proposes failing this month to reject Musk's attempts to escape a decision taken by British diver in a Friday.
MUSC called Unsworth a "Pedo" in a July 15 post on this Twitter account after Unsworth, in an interview with CNN, dismissed Musk's attempts to help save the soccer players as a "PR trick." Unsworth also derided the submarine that Musk had built for a rescue mission, prompting Musk to pull back on this Twitter account, which had 22.5 million followers at the time
Musk ended his insult protected from legal action, but the judges oversaw the case disagreed.
Unwanted is seeking more than $ 75,000 in damages from Musk, a Multibylan. The suit also seeks a court order to prohibit Musk from making any further disparaging comments.
It's been the second time in less than a year that MUSIC's free-to-air Twitter feedback has saddled him with legal headaches.
Last year, MUSC and TESLA reached a $ 40 million settlement of allegations that it was pleading investors with a tweet declaring that it had secured financing for a motor vehicle manufacturer's prospect. He then had to go to court earlier this year to protect himself from assertions that he had violated an agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding his tweeting.
