We have a schedule for the Delaware Court of Chancery lawsuit over Twitter’s lawsuit against Elon Musk for terminating his agreement to buy the company for $44 billion. Earlier this week, the Musk team proposed a start date of October 17, which Twitter agreed to, provided the trial could be completed in five days. Now Judge Kathaleen McCormick has… issued an official schedulethe trial taking place from October 17 to October 21.
While lawyers from both sides initially battled over possible launch dates — Twitter was in a September lawsuit while Elon’s lawyers sought something in 2023 — there’s now one element everyone can agree on, and reporters can start planning. their fall vacations in Delaware.
