Elon Musk is going on trial for his troublesome tweets in a defamation lawsuit pitting the billionaire against a British diver he’s accused of branding a pedophile. The Tesla CEO is expected to testify early in the case to explain what he meant when he called Vernon Unsworth, who helped rescue youth soccer players trapped underwater in a Thailand cave, “pedo guy” in a Twitter spat last year. It’s unclear when he will take the stand, and his attorney said a judge told Musk to be in federal court in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
