Business Insider headline: Twitter is dragging Elon Musk’s billionaire friends into its $44 billion legal battle with a flurry of subpoenas
Twitter has subpoenaed Chamath Palihapitiya and multiple members of Musk’s social circle.
One of Musk’s associates called the legal requests a “giant harassing fishing expedition.”
Twitter has also subpoenaed the banks that are helping finance the $44 billion purchase.
Twitter has issued a slew of subpoenas to some of Silicon Valley’s biggest names amid its legal battle with Elon Musk, The Washington Post first reported.
Twitter sent legal requests to billionaire investors Chamath Palihapitiya and Marc Andreessen on Monday, according to documents that were obtained by The Post. The publication said Twitter also subpoenaed one of the entrepreneurs that helped Musk found PayPal, David Sacks, SpaceX and Tesla board member Stephen Jurvetson, as well as investors Jason Calacanis, Keith Rabois, and Joe Lonsdale.
The legal requests could require the men to testify in court when the five-day trial starts in October.
