Twitter v. Elon Musk trial to begin on October 17 for five days

Bloomberg reports that a Delaware judge, Kathaleen McCornick, has confirmed that the five-day trial between Twitter and Elon Musk will begin on October 17 and end on October 20. Musk attempted to back out of the $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter, but Twitter now wants him to complete his multibillion-dollar purchase.

Initially, the Musk team sought to delay the experiment until 2023, while Twitter preferred September. Twitter agreed to the October 17 start date offered by Musk’s attorneys since the trial could be completed in five days.

As Musk reversed his decision out of concern for Twitter bots, Twitter filed suit in an effort to resolve the situation through legal action. Since then, there has been a great deal of activity between the two sides, with social media users seizing the chance to restart the meme game.

Now, we must wait until October to see which party will be proclaimed the winner by the Delaware Court of Chancery following the conclusion of the five-day drama.
