Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Elon Musk found NOT guilty of defaming diver he called 'pedo guy'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

On Friday, a federal court in California heard that Unsworth - one of the hero divers who rescued 12 boys and their soccer coach from the cave - was left feeling 'humiliated, ashamed, [and] dirtied,' by billionaire's tweet. 

However, a jury sided with Musk after his lawyers argued it was no more than a playground insult and did not represent an actual allegation of pedophilia. 

Unsworth had a different opinion, as he left the courtroom stating: 'I respect the jury's decision - unfortunately it didn't go as I expected. 

His British lawyer, Mark Stephens, told DailyMail.com: 'It's a pity that a bullying billionaire may be able to cast such a long shadow as this. We came here because Mr Musk said sue or true.'
