Twitter Says Musk Investigated by Federal Authorities Over Deal
Updated on

Twitter Inc.’s lawyers tried again last week to learn what Elon Musk had told federal authorities who were investigating his attempt to take the social media company private.

Attorneys for Twitter wrote to a Delaware judge on Oct. 6 saying they needed documents about the probes, according to a letter unsealed in court Thursday. Musk had by that point reversed himself on walking away from the $44 billion takeover, but he and the social media company were still adversaries in court -- and their fight had not yet been officially put on hold.
