The CA filed the complaint on Tuesday against Elon Musk to force him to buy the social network under the terms agreed with the tycoon at the end of April, in which the deal was set at 44 billion dollars.
Twitter executives wanted the process to start in September, in order to shorten the period of uncertainty that partially paralyzes the company. For his part, the billionaire requested not to start before February 13, given the complexity of the factors involved.
The lawyers of Elon Musk did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the GLM.
The businessman had committed to the purchase at the end of April, but last week he unilaterally announced that he was ending the agreement after the CA did not send him reliable information about the number of active false accounts on Twitter.
