Twitter’s Bid to Fast-Track Musk Trial Will Get Hearing July 19

A judge set a hearing for Twitter Inc.’s request to fast-track a trial in its lawsuit against billionaire Elon Musk alleging he wrongfully canceled his proposed $44 billion buyout of the social media platform.

Delaware Chancery Court Chief Judge Kathaleen St. J. McCormick said in a letter Thursday that Twitter’s call for “expedition” of its case over the teetering transaction will be heard July 19 in a Wilmington courtroom.
