The first Twitter trial against Ilon Mask will take place on 17 October

Twitter Inc. v. Ilon Mask.

Judge Delaware Katalyn McCormick of the Chancellor's Court indicated the date after Mask's lawyers called the Twitter demand to hold the first trial on October 10 "unfounded" and proposed to schedule it on October 17. Twitter did not object to this date if the trial was expedited in five days.

Prior to that, the legal team of Ilona Maska opposed the expedited proceedings and suggested that the hearing should start in February, which would allow her sufficient time to gather evidence regarding the excess of the questionable Twitter accounts of 5 per cent indicated by the social network, but the judge agreed with Twitter arguments that long waiting for the outcome of the case could cause significant damage to the company.

Twitter lawyers argue that it would take them four days to prove to Mask that questions about spam and questionable accounts are simply a pretext to refuse a transaction. Twitter stated that it had given the Mask all the information about these accounts, and there is no reason to refuse the transaction. Let's recall that on September 13, there will be a special Twitter shareholders' meeting dedicated to approving the transaction.
