Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 06, 2019

Elon Musk did not defame a British diver who helped in last year's Thai cave rescue by calling him a "pedo guy" in a tweet, a US jury has found. Vernon Unsworth sought $190 million in damages from the Tesla founder, arguing that the tweet damaged his reputation. ... Unsworth's lawyer Lin Wood said their side would leave the court "with our heads held high" but that the decision was "not a good verdict for society". "This verdict sends a signal, and one signal only - that you can make any accusation you want to, as vile as it may be and as untrue as it may be, and somebody can get away with it," he said.
