It was quite clear and obvious that Musk was referring to Vern . So, you can say anything about anyone as long as you dont directly say their name when its quite clear and obvious that you are ta

I think Mr. Mark Stephen's, Esq. better come to grip with defamation laws as they exist in the USA. One of the key issues was that Unsworth had not shown any tangible damages - on the contrary - no on

Absolutely right. It's gone too far already. Going for such absurdly high damages payments has tarnished Unsworth's rep much more than any tweet would have.   Now is the time to walk away wi

Or did Musk hit a personal snare by calling some 5 minute famer a pedo?

He went much further than that. He also insinuated that all Western men who come to live in Thailand are paedophiles. Presuming that you live in Thailand, that includes you. Happy now?

Fact 1: Musk is a creep. 
Fact 2: Musk is a bull<deleted>ter. 
Fact 3: Musk is full of himself.  
Fact 4: In America there’s something called “double jeopardy”. Google it. 
 

Suggestion: next time rely on an American legal team to lead in the American legal system. This isn’t Britain. 
Hint: rely on a local legal team if you’re thinking about dragging this to Thailand.

There is nowhere he said all western men are pedos.

Care to provide any links?

 

When people mention thailand, yes, many people link it to prostitutes  beer, beaches,...

Not so much to paedophilia.

But i guess that depends to who YOU talk with.

My friends appreciate the nature and culture more than bars...

 

Includes me??? Happy??

Euh yeah, i could not care less what other people think about thailand, and less about what people i dont know or they dont know me think.

I dont feel offended, as i know my life.

Maybe you seem to take it more personally.

Wonder why. Know any pedos perhaps?

Those "facts" above are farts

Not facts at all.

I think the fact here is that you have issues with Musk however.

 

Yeah google double jeopardy...

Hard to bring any new evidence to this case.

Maybe someone from California can answer this in a few lines:

Are the names of the jury members public in California and/or should it be easy for a rich guy to get this information?

The way Musk behaves I understand that people don't want to upset him and maybe that was part of why he got away with this.

Personally I would be careful about upsetting the richest guy in the neighborhood.

In a jury trial, Musk’s lawyers would know relevant details (name, occupation, etc) about the members of the jury.   
 

Jury selection is an important aspect of the strategy of both sides.

Now is the time to walk away with dignity fully intact.

I agree and be careful Vern that the lawyer is not trying to take you to the cleaners or that Musk sues you, I'd hate to hear either happen to you, let it be we all know you was in the right.

I've seen the massive mural painting on the wall at Tham Luang of all those that helped in the rescue you are is in the middle "Musk" is nowhere to be seen, 5555 be happy with that and your memories.

As i suspected Vernon has not come out of this looking good. Transcripts from his cross examination showed he had sent a significant number of sms relating to the rescue effort and the Musk case. They indicated he was planing to sue pretty much from day 1. He was very rude about the navy seals in one message using the bovine insult and refused interviews unless he was getting paid, telling them to FO if no payment was forthcoming. Also appears he had an agent scouting for (paid) opportunities while the rescue was still ongoing. The claim that Musk was promptly asked to leave the rescue site (Verns CNN interview) - was a straight up lie. On the contrary Musk was inside the cave for an hour with a high level thai official working on Plan B. A space x engineer (who Vern met) was looking for an alternative route for the sub to use.

 

All paints a picture that Vern was the one eyeing financial opportunities from the Cave Rescue. 

Yea as I thought this from day 1 and I assume he got paid for the CNN interview and the SUN and UK tabloid interviews.
I even suspect he was baiting Musk on CNN probably under advice from his paid Agent.
