Discovery disputes continue to reverberate as the Twitter v. Musk lawsuit enters its third and final month before trial. For Lawrence Elbaum, the co-head of Vinson & Elkins’ shareholder activism practice, it seems unlikely Elon Musk will be able to get out of his bid to buy Twitter entirely, but the case as it stands will require Twitter to tread carefully to avoid giving too much away.

Aside from the high-profile litigants, their world-class attorneys and the $44 billion price tag on the merger, Elbaum said the case is one that requires fairly basic contract interpretation from the Court of Chancery, but the fight between Twitter and Musk could continue beyond trial.
