Twitter Inc. is asking a judge to order Elon Musk to turn over all of his text messages from the first six months of 2022, saying the billionaire wasn’t cooperating in exchanging evidence ahead of trial in the fight over his $44 billion buyout offer.

The social-media company submitted the public proposed order in a Friday court filing in Delaware attached to a sealed request for sanctions against Musk and his lawyers.
