The judge overseeing Twitter Inc.’s lawsuit against Elon Musk has tested positive for Covid-19. 

Judge Kathaleen St. J. McCormick said that a Tuesday hearing in Delaware on Twitter’s motion to fast track its case will be moved to Zoom instead of in-person because she needs to be “isolating this week pursuant to CDC guidelines,” according to a letter Monday. She added her symptoms were not severe.
