"In a deposition recording from August 22, Musk reiterated that he found the image of an "old angry white guy living in Thailand" to be suspicious, describing Thailand as a "very dodgy part of the world."

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

Sounds like his lawyer just found another way to scam more money in lawyer fees out of poor ol' Vern.

 

Free legal services (or pro bono services) that Unsworth was offered will not cost him anything.  You really think that Unsworth is in any financial position to fight Musk?

Maybe someone in Thailand does. 

Musk also defamed Unsworth's relationship with a Thai lady as pedophilia.

Who cares really!!

The UK scanner has already made a fortune off the press and he is making more everyday this endless and boring story continues.

He probably has enough money to retire should he wish.

Who knows he may be propping up a bar stool in LOS very soon.

Hmm, Unsworth is the only one who still lives in the quarrel and that long after it ended. Now he tops it with greed and this he managed on his own - Do we see signs of attention urge ... 🤔

You might but not everybody else does.

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. 

It might paint a picture for you but for me it is a painting by numbers picture with a lot of the numbers missing and a lot of numbers and paints mixed up.

Ah! I understand now! Its perfectly ok to call Americans " PEDO GUY!!

Hello PEDO Guys ...cold this morning?

No i dont think you do understand.

He didnt say it's ok to call all Americans pedos.

Maybe read again...

He said there was no tangable damage to Vern

One of the main requirements in a defamation lawsuit.

This whole suit was a farce.

Unsworth should take his case to the Thai court. Jail time for Musk.

 

If that's how Thailand treated those who would magnanimously spend tens of thousands of dollars and sleepless nights to try to help Thai boys stuck in a Thai cave, I don't suppose that anyone would like to help again.  Musk was not against Thai people--why should they be against him?

Well that's Unbelievable! My opinion of him just dropped 1 level lower and it was already low.
Really is that what Heroes do lol.

Do you believe @warrima's post?

If so why has nobody else mentioned anything about the GoPro camera?

I believe that Vern had one as many of the other rescuers did. It would be a sort of sensible thing to use in cave diving and potholing.

Go read his texts! Monkfish has posted a link to some. Also google the court transcripts from his examination. Much of Verns focus was on monetization through interviews, book deals and movie deals. He even disses some of the (real) divers because they proceeded with interviews without him.
