The Elon Musk-Twitter Dance Continues

The Associated Press reports, “The tumultuous saga of Elon Musk’s on-again off-again purchase of Twitter took a turn toward a conclusion [Oct. 4] after the mercurial Tesla CEO proposed to buy the company at the originally agreed-on price of $44 billion. … But the company stopped short of saying it’s dropping its lawsuit against the billionaire Tesla CEO. Experts said that makes sense given the contentious relationship and lack of trust between the two parties.”

Reuters reports, “Elon Musk and Twitter … have not yet reached an agreement to end the litigation and clear the way for the world’s richest person to close his $44-billion deal for the social media platform, two sources familiar with the litigation told Reuters on [Oct. 5]. … Twitter’s legal team and lawyers for Musk updated the judge on [Oct. 4] with their attempts to try to overcome mutual distrust and find a process for closing the deal. … Musk is scheduled to be deposed on [Oct. 6] in Austin, Texas.”

For some background on the proposed purchase, see George Pike’s Legal Issues column from July/August:
