In a major relief, Tesla co-founder Elon Musk has been cleared of defamation on Friday by a jury in Los Angeles over a tweet in which he labeled a British caver "pedo guy." The jury indulged in a serious discussion for less than an hour before ruling the case in favour of Musk and cleared him of any liability in the high-profile case that pitted him against Vernon Unsworth. Unsworth had sought $190 million in damages from Musk.
