The best burns Twitter’s lawyers deployed to deny Elon Musk’s claims - The Verge
Elon Musk’s counterclaims against Twitter’s lawsuit are under seal. Twitter filed their response anyway, and it’s full of funny lawyering.
So I don’t know entirely what’s in Elon Musk’s counterclaims against Twitter — they are still under seal — but I did get an inkling today, when Twitter dropped its response. It’s spicy! Rather than let Musk get his complaints out first, Twitter went ahead and released a blow-by-blow response, the better with which to dunk on Elon along the way.
I do love this:
The Counterclaims are a made-for-litigation tale that is contradicted by the evidence and common sense
Usually legal documents have arcane, passive-aggressive digs at the other party in them. Twitter’s lawyers, however, came out swinging in their reply to Musk’s counterclaims. Maybe that’s because they know how many people will read these documents; maybe it’s just because they’re interpersonally mean.
We picked our favorite passages in the paperwork, and are showcasing them here for anyone who might be interested.
