Twitter slams Elon Musk’s response to its lawsuit

Source: Axios

“We still don’t have Elon Musk’s response to Twitter’s lawsuit over his efforts to back out of his $44 billion acquisition, but we do now have Twitter’s response to Musk’s counterclaims. … Musk had filed the documents last Friday under seal, thus giving Twitter time to request redactions of what it considers to be confidential information. A judge ruled that Musk’s documents must be unsealed by the end of Friday, although Twitter’s new filing is a twofer in that it responds to many of Musk’s claims. … Musk, Twitter says, tries to claim he was ‘hoodwinked’ (Twitter’s language) by Twitter into signing the $44 billion merger agreement by asserting that Twitter breached its merger agreement by stonewalling information requests. He also claims he has the right to walk away from the deal if Twitter was ‘miscounting’ the number of false or spam accounts, per Twitter’s response.” (08/04/22)
