Elon Musk asks to delay the trial with Twitter

The trial between Elon Musk and Twitter could be delayed and not start on the scheduled dates. Elon Musk asked the Delaware Federal Court judge to delay until November although without proposing a new specific date for it.

The aforementioned media indicates that Elon Musk requested that both parties involved in the litigation can continue preparing their cases until November 10. And that the trial starts later that same month, depending on the availability of the court.

At the moment it is unknown if the change of dates is possible or if certain specific parameters must be met to make it possible. In any case, it would be necessary to see if Twitter would be willing to accept this possibility, beyond what can be defined from the court.

Originally, the social network intended for the trial to begin on October 10; while Elon Musk’s lawyers sought to kick the issue by 2023. However, the judge Kathleen McCormick, of the Federal Court of Delaware, gave the go-ahead for the appointment not to be delayed beyond October.
