The British cavern pioneer who sued Tesla Inc’s Elon Musk for marking their “pedo fellow” in a tweet has limited their slander body of evidence against the electric vehicle creator’s CEO, and is never again looking for harms for a messaged proposal they may be a kid attacker.

Vernon Unsworth, who has denied the charges, decided to seek after risk and harms claims at a planned Dec. 3 carelessness preliminary just for Musk’s tweets supposedly considering their a pedophile, U.S. Region Judge Stephen Wilson said in a Wednesday request.

The judge likewise chose not to separate the preliminary to survey obligation and corrective harms independently on the grounds that proof of Musk’s “perspective” would be comparative on the two issues, and Musk wouldn’t surrender they didn’t utilize sensible consideration in condemning Unsworth.

Alex Spiro, a legal advisor for Musk, declined to remark on Friday. Unsworth’s legal advisor, L. Lin Wood, didn’t promptly react to demands for input.

Wilson gave their request after hearings this week in Los Angeles. Musk is relied upon to affirm at preliminary.

The case emerged after Unsworth and their plunging group increased worldwide prestige in July 2018 by protecting 12 young men and their soccer mentor from a Thailand cavern.

Unsworth scrutinized Musk’s offering a smaller than usual submarine from his SpaceX rocket organization to help with the salvage, disclosing to it was a “PR stunt” and that Musk could “stick his submarine where it harms.”

Yet, they said that didn’t legitimize Musk’s July 15, 2018 tweets that they “never observed this British expat fellow,” trailed by “Sorry pedo fellow, you truly asked for it” and, in a supposed explanation, “Wager ya a marked dollar it’s valid.”

Wilson said Unsworth decided not to seek after harms asserts over later messages by Musk to BuzzFeed News, including that a journalist “quit shielding kid attackers.”

The judge said Unsworth can utilize those messages to show Musk’s perspective behind the July 15 tweets. Musk has apologized for the “pedo fellow” remark.
