Twitter Doesn’t Oppose Oct. 17 Trial in Musk Buyout Case

Twitter Inc. snapped back at billionaire Elon Musk over accusations it’s being intransigent on setting a specific trial date and isn’t agreeing to hand over documents.

The company, which sued Musk after he halted a planned $44 billion takeover, said it was false for the Tesla Inc. co-founder to claim in his own filing on Tuesday that Twitter was insisting “without justification” on an Oct. 10 trial start.
