A lawyer for a British diver has threatened to sue Tesla chief Elon Musk after he again called the man a “paedophile.”
Atlanta-based attorney L. Lin Wood, a prominent defamation lawyer representing British diver Vernon Unsworth, told CNN Wednesday that he is in the process of “finalizing the libel complaint” and expects to file it in a Los Angeles federal court “in the next several days”.
Unsworth had last month criticized Musk’s offer to send a miniature submarine to assist in the rescue operation at a cave complex in northern Thailand as impractical and simply a “PR stunt.”
The British diver at the time said Musk “can stick his submarine where it hurts.”
In response Musk suggested in a tweet that Unsworth was a “pedo” but later apologized for his comments.
However, on Tuesday, Musk tweeted again: “You don’t think it’s strange he [Unsworth] hasn’t sued me?”
Unsworth was part of an international team of divers that rescued the 12 young footballers and their 25-year-old coach last month.
