Elon Musk subpoenas Jack Dorsey amid Twitter legal fight

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, Elon Musk, law

Lawyers representing Elon Musk in his battle with Twitter have former CEO Jack Dorsey. The filing is the latest development as Musk and Twitter prepare for the October trial over Musk’s attempt to bail on his $44 billion deal to buy the company.

It’s not yet clear how Dorsey factors in to Musk’s legal strategy. As noted by the y Twitter account, the subpoena refers to “documents and communications reflecting, referring to, or relating to the impact or effect of false or spam accounts on Twitter’s business operations.” It also references documents related to how Twitter uses mDAU or monetizable daily active users as a “key metric.” Interestingly, it “documents relating to incorporating mDAU into executive or director compensation.”

Dorsey isn’t the only former Twitter executive subpoenaed by Musk. Twitter’s product chief and former head of revenue Bruce Falck have also received subpoenas.
