In response to Twitter’s lawsuit in the “Delaware” court, Elon Musk has asked this court to reject Twitter’s $44 billion lawsuit.
ABC News reported on Saturday, July 16, that Musk argued that Twitter’s September deadline for sending the case to court was not practical.
After Musk announced that he was backing out of the deal, Twitter sued him to force him to complete the purchase of the company.
Alex Spiro, Musk’s lawyer, said that Twitter’s proposal was based on the false assumption that the termination date of Twitter’s merger with Musk was October 24.
The Delaware court will determine whether Musk is still obligated to buy Twitter or whether he has the right to withdraw from the purchase agreement due to Twitter’s failure to provide the requested information.
Musk claimed that Twitter failed to reveal the number of fake accounts on the platform. Twitter has said that five percent of active users on this network are bots, but Musk does not believe this figure.
Musk has asked the court not to set a trial date earlier than mid-February next year.
