Musk confidentially countersues Twitter over nixed acquisition bid: reports

This counterclaim was filed under seal. I am curious as to the counterclaim

Tesla CEO Elon Musk confidentially filed a countersuit against Twitter after the company sued him for terminating a deal to buy the social media platform for $44 billion earlier this month, according to multiple news reports.

The Friday countersuit was not made publicly available. A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment to The Hill on the development.


The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Musk is expected to counterclaim that the number of monetizable daily active users was changed by Twitter before the deal was expected to go through.

In addition, the Journal reported Musk will likely claim that Twitter did not respond when the SpaceX CEO’s team made inquiries on spam number data that the team claimed were not sufficiently answered by the social media company.

Jurors were sent home about 15 minutes early Wednesday amid a dispute between lawyers for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and the parents of a child who was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2015.

Andino Reynal, Jones' lawyer, moved to admit a nine-minute segment of a Jones InfoWars video, but Mark Bankston, a lawyer for the parents, objected, saying the video contained hearsay and was not appropriate for a trial on the size of the damage award Jones must pay for calling the shooting a hoax.....

Reynal complained that said he wanted to show a complete segment to counter "little clips of cherry-picked videos" that Bankston had shown jurors. But Guerra Gamble reminded Reynal that he was supposed to have submitted all evidence at a pretrial hearing but didn't have the videos ready, handcuffing his presentation and putting the court in a bind.

Then tempers flared.....

"Bankston is being dishonest with the court," Reynal said, repeating that that he and the opposing lawyer had agreed to introduce the videos into evidence, with Bankston repeating his denial.....

Guerra Gamble also said she was going to chalk up Reynal's accusations to a tough day in court with emotions running high, adding: "If you are going to call other attorneys in my courtroom dishonest, you have to back that up."


According to Juanita Jean, the judge stated that Mark Bankston always submits all agreements in writing, There will be a hearing tomorrow.
