Elon Musk's Defense Says Calling Diver 'Pedo' Wasn't Serious

Business Insider reports Elon Musk has filed a motion to dismiss the defamation allegation brought by British cave diver Vern Unsworth.

Unsworth is suing Musk after the Tesla CEO baselessly called him a pedophile.

Musk's lawyers argue that his "over-the-top insults" were opinion, not factual statements, and should be protected by free speech laws.

The billionaire CEO's attempt to dismiss the claim hinges on the arguments that Unsworth attacked Musk first, that Musk made his attacks on a social media platform known for "hyperbole", and that Musk's remarks were opinion and not statements of fact.
