Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey will be argued in court in the ongoing legal battle between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the microblogging platform run by Parag Agrawal.
According to media reports citing court documents, Dorsey was scheduled to be questioned by lawyers for both teams on Tuesday.
Musk’s legal team filed a subpoena in court last month to obtain evidence from Dorsey.
Twitter and Musk are preparing for an Oct. 17 trial date in Delaware Court of Chancery to discuss their bid to rescind the $44 billion acquisition deal.
Dorsey stepped down as CEO of Twitter for the second time last November, handing control of the company he helped create to Agrawal. He currently runs financial services firm Block.
After the world’s richest man bought Twitter, Dorsey had said the Tesla CEO “is the singular solution that I trust.”
“In principle, I don’t think anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at the protocol level, not a company. However, to solve the problem of being a company, Elon is the singular solution in which I trust. I trust his mission to spread the light of consciousness,” Dorsey wrote.
In May, he resigned from Twitter’s board of directors.
Dorsey has been adamant that he will never be Twitter’s CEO again, following reports of him joining the microblogging platform following Musk’s $44 billion acquisition.
Musk has terminated the Twitter deal due to the presence of fake/spam accounts.
