Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is scheduled to meet with Twitter’s attorneys over the coming days to answer questions in advance of a trial in October that will determine whether he must adhere to the terms of his $44 billion agreement to buy the social media platform after making an attempt to back out of the deal.
The deposition, which is scheduled to take place on Monday, Tuesday, and maybe Wednesday, won’t be open to the public.
It remained unclear on Sunday night whether Musk will appear in person or through video.
The trial is expected to start on October 17 and last just five days in Delaware Chancery Court.
The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, agreed to acquire Twitter and take it private in April.
He offered $54.20 per share and promised to relax content policing policies and eliminate phony accounts.
On Friday, Twitter’s stock price reached $41.58.
Twitter filed a lawsuit against Musk to force him to complete the acquisition after Musk said he intended to pull out of the transaction in July.
