The Twitter vs. Elon Musk battle seems to be getting more dramatic by the day in the lead up to the upcoming trial.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has recently put in another filing against the social media platform which sets out several more reasons why he is terminating the contract to purchase the company. It didn’t take long for Twitter to publicly respond to this with their lawyer, William Savitt, branding the latest filing as “invalid and wrongful.”
The latest filing also mentioned the allegations of Pieter Zatko, former security chief at Twitter and whistleblower. Musk’s legal team claim that Zatko’s complaint “alleges far-reaching misconduct at Twitter— all of which was disclosed to Twitter’s directors and senior executives, including [CEO] Parag Agrawal.”
William Savitt is arguing that Musk’s claims are based on “statements made by a third party that, as Twitter has previously stated, are riddled with inconsistencies and inaccuracies and lack important context. Contrary to the assertions in your letter, Twitter has breached none of its representations or obligations under the agreement.”
Savitt goes on to clarify that Twitter are still looking to “enforce the agreement and close the transaction on the price and terms agreed upon with the Musk parties.”
