He had a golden opportunity and he squandered when he went after the quick payoff.

After Musk apologised he should have held a press conference , said he was also sorry so telling Musk to stick it. Emotions were running high , bla bla bla,  I would like to meet Musk and talk man to man, They mee have lunch, a couple of bears and ar buddies, , come out proclaim water under the bridge. 

Does not hurt to have a friend like musk IMO. 

 

What makes you think Musk would have any interest in meeting him other than in court?

"Does not hurt to have a friend like musk IMO."  The only problem with that is Musk would measure friendship with what the other person can do for him..........  

I am not sure what Musk measures friendship with, we are not that close.

but assuming you are correct, What it would had done for Musk would had being to diffuse the situation, and I am sure that was of value to Musk.

Unsworth's lawyers took the case on pro bono, so it'd just be the travel costs I guess. But yes, it's a disgraceful outcome. Do the US courts and juries not understand the gravity of the accusations Musk repeatedly made? 

More importantly, they look after their own!

There's a legal difference between insults and defamation.

If I called you a speccy four eyed twit ...... that would clearly be an insult and not legally actionable.

If I called you a pedophile (after you had just been working with children), then repeated the claims to a reporter, and hired a private detective to look for dirt on you, entirely different matter, as I would have been clearly trying to harm you, your income, and your reputation.

Correct answer.

 

As clear a case of defamation as there ever was.

 

I wouldn't worry though, Musk will get done criminally in the Thai courts.

And after the verdict, the jury drove off into the sunset in there all new Tesla 3....

Do you think this is libel? You'd better hope that Elon doesn't read your accusation.

Not quite.

 

Some of jury quite possibly own Tesla vehicles. 

 

That could be argued that owning a Tesla, or having a positive experience with the brand affected their decision while members of the jury.

 

An example of libel would be if the poster stated "Elon Musk bribed the jury to deliver a favourable verdict by purchasing them all Tesla model 3's as a reward".

now that a defamation, dude

Well a Pedo gets treated much harder by the law then someone who pays or gets a bribe. So I think I should be safe.

I am just offended by the verdict, so it is just natural to make this assumption. So I just use the same line of defence Musky Boy did use. ☺️
