Elon Musk Asks Court to Delay Twitter Trial

Musk’s legal team claims Twitter is pressing for an unusually speedy trial in the case of his $44 billion offer to acquire the social media site, according to Bloomberg.

After two months of foot-dragging and obfuscation, Twitter’s call for warp speed is its latest strategy to conceal the truth about spam accounts long enough to railroad defendants into closure,” Musk’s legal team stated in response to Twitter’s July 12th lawsuit.

Both sides want the case to be heard on a timetable that is vastly different from one another. Twitter requested a four-day trial that would terminate before the end of September in light of the deal’s October 24th “drop-dead date.” According to Musk’s legal team, the matter will be tried on February 13th, 2023, at the latest.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s legal team reaffirmed that “the main disagreement over fake and spam accounts is important to Twitter’s worth,” reaffirming his assertion that Twitter inaccurately overstated the volume of bots on its network. “It also requires a significant amount of factual and expert expertise and time for discovery.”

No one has to wait long for the start of proceedings, which is a good thing for both sides. Kathaleen McCormick, a Delaware Chancery Court Judge, set a 90-minute hearing for July 19th on Friday. McCormick will hear arguments in preparation for a trial scheduled for September.
