Judge rejects Elon Musk’s ‘absurdly broad’ data requests

Karimi & Associates Law Firm represents, according to “Reuters” and “The Verge”:

At this stage of the lawsuit between the Twitter company and Elon Musk, the two sides are pursuing information to support their arguments about whether Musk should be able to get out of his agreement to buy Twitter for $44 billion before the scheduled trial on October 17th.

After a hearing on discovery requests from lawyers representing both Elon Musk and Twitter on Thursday, August 25th, Judge Kathaleen McCormick denied the Musk team’s “absurdly broad” request for Twitter users’ details.

According to the judge’s ruling, Musk’s lawyers demanded “all of the data Twitter might store for each of the approximately 200 million accounts included in its mDAU (monetized daily active users) count every day for nearly three years”, which led to the judge’s refusal since Twitter has been already ordered by the court to hand over data from 9,000 accounts to estimate the number of spam or bot users on the social media platform, and Chancellor Kathaleen McCormick has supposed this amount of information to be enough to satisfy most of the plaintiff’s (Elon Musk) obligations.
