Elon Musk to Face Trial

Tesla and SpaceX executive Elon Musk will face trial in a lawsuit filed by a man who Musk called a pedophile, a judge has ruled, according to the BBC.

As a group of schoolboys were trapped in a cave in Thailand, Musk tweeted about ways he could help rescue the boys, which Vern Unsworth, who was helping in the search called a “PR stunt.” In response, Musk referred to Unsworth as “Pedo guy.” 

Musk later apologized, but Unsworth sued Musk for $75,000 over the comments. The trial is set to begin on October 22.
