Twitter Inc. responded Monday to Elon Musk’s motion opposing the company’s request to expedite a trial over his intention to terminate his $44 billion takeover, saying it “fails at every level.”
The social-media company said Monday in a legal filing in Delaware Chancery Court that the public dispute harms Twitter every day that Musk is in breach of the merger agreement.

reiterated that the court should set trial in September, on an expedited schedule.
A remote hearing is scheduled for Tuesday morning on Twitter’s motion to expedite the case.
