Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk set to testify at ‘pedo guy’ trial today

The Los Angeles Federal Court case begins today and will put Musk and his accuser Vernon Unsworth face-to-face for the first time.

Unsworth was a member of the rescue team who saved a Thai boys football team trapped in a cave in June 2018.

He poured scorn on Musk’s attempt to bring a mini-submarine to the rescue mission, calling it a “PR stunt”.

Unsworth is seeking punitive and monetary damages for the tweets, but not for the subsequent email.

Unsworth’s lawyer said Musk’s explanation is “offensive to the truth” and that he would provide evidence of damages at the trial by “talking about [Unsworth’s] worries, his anxieties, his concern by being branded a pedophile”.

Musk’s legal team also tried to argue Unsworth became a public figure as a part of the rescue of the Thai boys, meaning that it is more difficult to prove defamation and that “actual malice” needs to be shown.

This explanation was thrown out by judge Stephen Wilson.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator
