What happens next in the Twitter lawsuit against Elon Musk – The Washington Post

Twitter’s saga with billionaire Elon Musk, marked by months of negotiations and contentious tweets, has made its way to the court system.
Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, agreed to buy the social media company for about $44 billion in April, saying he wanted to promote free speech on the site and “defeat the spam bots.” But less than three months later, he filed to terminate the deal after accusing Twitter of withholding information about the bot accounts on its site.
Twitter then sued Musk in the Delaware Court of Chancery, seeking to enforce the deal and writing that “Musk refuses to honor his obligations to Twitter and its stockholders because the deal he signed no longer serves his personal interests.”
Chancellor Kathaleen McCormick largely agreed with Twitter’s request for an expedited trial Tuesday. The judge set a five-day trial in October for the case, rebuking arguments from Musk’s lawyers that it shouldn’t be held until February.
