The Twitter-Musk Acquisition Dispute Will Go To Trial In October!!!

Twitter-Musk Updates: Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, was unsuccessful in his attempt to have the trial date for Twitter’s lawsuit against him delayed after a Delaware judge on Tuesday cited the “cloud of uncertainty” that now hangs over the social media giant as a result of the billionaire’s decision to back out of a deal to buy it.

The chief judge of Delaware’s Court of Chancery, which hears numerous high-profile corporate cases, Chancellor Kathaleen St. Jude McCormick, stated that “delay threatens irreparable injury.” The risk increases with increasing delay.

In September, Twitter requested a speedy trial, but Musk’s legal team argued that it should be delayed until early 2019 due to the case’s complexity.

The Delaware court’s capacity to “expeditiously process complex litigation,” according to McCormick, was overestimated by Musk’s team.
Twitter is attempting to persuade the billionaire to follow through on his April promise to purchase the dominant social media platform for $44 billion. The company wants it to happen right away because it claims the protracted legal battle is harming its ability to conduct business.

Attorney and University of Richmond law professor Carl Tobias stated that the choice was “very helpful for Twitter in terms of moving things forward.”

She expressed a great deal of concern about the assertion that a delay would significantly harm the company, and I think that is true.

THE MOST WEALTHY MAN IN THE WORLD, MUSK, AGREED TO BUY TWITTER FOR $54.20 A SHARE, BUT HE LET THE FIRM KNOW IN JULY THAT HE INTENDS TO BREAK THE DEAL:

“It’s an attempt at sabotage. He’s attempting to shut down Twitter “William Savitt, an attorney, argued on Tuesday before McCormick that Twitter was speaking on its behalf. The hearing was conducted virtually after McCormick asserted that her COVID-19 test result was positive.

By firing key executives and letting go a substantial chunk of its workers, as well as by neglecting to share enough information on the number of phoney or “spam bot” Twitter accounts, the company, according to Musk, has allegedly violated the terms of the agreement.
More information on the bot numbers is expected to come to light during the trial court’s discovery phase, when both sides are forced to give over evidence, according to Musk’s lawyers.

The majority of Musk’s personal wealth is concentrated in shares of the electric-car manufacturer Tesla, and Twitter claims that Musk’s justifications for pulling out are just a cover for buyer’s remorse after agreeing to pay 38 percent more than Twitter’s stock price just before the stock market crashed and shares of Tesla lost more than $100 billion of their value.

Savitt questioned Musk’s plea for a delayed trial, asking “if the true purpose is to drag out the clock.” Savitt claimed that the contentious merger deal and Musk’s derogatory tweets about the corporation were harming the business. He hopes to get out of the agreement he signed, Savitt added.

The notion that the Tesla CEO is attempting to harm Twitter is absurd, though. As Twitter’s second-largest stakeholder with a “much larger stake” than the firm’s whole board of directors, Musk has no interest in harming the company, according to Musk attorney Andrew Rossman.
Savitt underlined the significance of an accelerated trial beginning in September so that Twitter could make critical business choices affecting everything from staff retention to relationships with suppliers and consumers.

ACCORDING TO ROSSMAN, THIS “ONE OF THE LARGEST TAKE-PRIVATE DEALS IN HISTORY” NECESSITATES MORE TIME:

featuring a business with a huge amount of data that needs to be examined. There must be analysis of billions of actions on their platform.
Tobias said there’s still a chance Musk and Twitter would settle the matter before it goes to trial because both parties might find a protracted legal battle or the judge’s final ruling damaging to their reputations and businesses. If either Musk or Twitter was found to be at fault for the agreement falling through, one possibility is that Musk would pay the $1 billion breakup fee that both parties agreed to. Or, Twitter might demand that he pay more to make up for the damage he did, but not the full $44 billion acquisition.

Does Musk genuinely want to run that company? Do they really want Musk to lead that company as CEO? From Tobias. Always have a middle ground available to them.
