American billionaire Ilon Mask, who once again wanted to buy Twitter after months of trying to avoid the deal, did not come to an agreement with the social media network to stop the trial because of his refusal to buy, which Reuters announced on Wednesday with reference to informed sources.
," said one of the sources, and the other added that the continuation of the trial was a way of putting pressure on Maska if he changed the decision again and tried to break the deal again.
The Twitter team and the lawyers of Ilon Maska reported on Tuesday to the judge of the State Chancellor's Court of Delaware, Katalyn McCormick, who is in charge of the trial, their intention to agree on the conclusion of the deal.
According to court documents released on Wednesday, Mask refused to testify during the preliminary investigation at the end of September, citing fears that Twitter counsel might contact someone who later had a positive result on COVID-19.
It will be recalled that the head of Tesla and SpaceX announced in July the rejection of the April absorption agreement, explaining his decision, including that Twitter did not provide reliable information on the number of fairy accounts.
