The legal drama continues. Elon Musk has served former Twitter boss Jack Dorsey with an injunction against a series of documents as part of the battle he launched to extricate himself from the social network’s $44 billion takeover deal.
The Twitter co-founder and friend of the Tesla boss received an injunction against giving him any files or messages related to the acquisition agreement reached in April, according to documents released Monday. Any information about fake accounts or how Twitter counts its active users is also affected. Applies to all documents on these topics available from Jack Dorsey since January 2019.
The battle for fake accounts
Elon Musk and Twitter have been in a legal battle since July after the billionaire pulled out of an agreement to take over the social network. In mid-July, Twitter filed a lawsuit against the billionaire, accusing him of failing to fulfill his obligations and damaging the company’s reputation. Elon Musk then counterattacked by claiming that the social network had “fooled” him with the number of fake accounts.
He even claimed that the social network “cheated” by voluntarily increasing the number of monetized accounts. On the social network, he says spam accounts for less than 5% of users.
Preparing for the test
According to Bloomberg, after Elon Musk pulled out of the Twitter takeover agreement, dozens of individuals, banks and investment funds were subpoenaed by both parties. And this is in order to collect materials for the trial, which should begin on October 17 and last five days.
In mid-August, Elon Musk’s lawyers won a partial victory. The Delaware court in charge of the case did subpoena Cavon Bakepur, a former social media product manager, and Bruce Falk, a former revenue manager, to send them a series of documents.
