Elon Musk Opens Lawsuit Under Secrecy Against Twitter

Elon Musk sued Twitter on Friday (29), intensifying his 

legal fight against the social media company. The 

billionaire is fighting over his attempt to back 

out of his $44 billion purchase of the platform. The lawsuit was filed confidentially.

to the public, under court rules a redacted version may soon become public.

Musk's lawsuit was opened hours after Chancellor Kathaleen

McCormick of the Delaware Court of Chancery ordered 

a five-day trial starting October 17 to determine whether Musk can back out of the deal.

Also on Friday, Musk was sued by a Twitter shareholder who

asked the court to order the billionaire to close the deal, claiming 

that he breached his fiduciary duty to Twitter shareholders for the losses he caused.
