    Apparently Musk had Jared Birchall, who the Los Angeles Times notes is the manager of Musk's family office, attempt to purchase the domain under a fake name in 2018.

    "Defense brings up a march 2018 email from Birchall using the Jim Brickhouse name and email when he was trying to buy a web domain for Musk," reported Mac (twitter post). "The domain Musk wanted to buy was justballs.com.

    Fake name is half the problem should have hired a broker with a real name.

    Elon just got duped by hiring a con man as a PI.

    Do you really think it's worth the risk for elon to be associated with a broker?

    I mean, I could understand if Elon used a publicly traded company such as GoDaddy Broker services but for liability reasons definitely NOT a broker with a real name.

    If he wanted the name, he would have acquired it. Likely, justballs didn't warrant the asking price, and that's saying something since the prospective buyer has deep pockets. The prospective buyer may like (arguably) idiotic domains, but surely he is not an idiot, and wouldn't agree to an unreasonable asking price.

    I know a Jim Brickman

    He had a company called Brick Beer which got sold for.... well lets just say a lot.

    So names with "Brick" in them are very real.

    Do you know any BrickHouses? Would plural be BrickHomes?

    FWIW:

    JamieBrickhouse.com has been regged since 2014
    JamesBrickhouse.com has been regged since 2019

    Names with Brick in them are also fictional.

    My favorite being Phil Brickma of the Cubs via Rookie of the Year...

    I am really surprised the defense introduced this domain into testimony considering Elon is accused of calling someone a "pedo."

    It looks to be retaliatory and certainly plays into the plaintiffs approach....IMO
