Elon Musk and his relationship with Twitter have been known to everyone. The SpaceX

so smoothly.

Following the Billionaire’s proposal in April, he once again stated in July that he want to
terminate the deal. Musk’s main concern was the number of fake and spam accounts on
the site. After this, the company proceeded to a legal lawsuit to force a deal with the
Tesla CEO. But just days before a trial in Delaware, Elon Musk agreed to close the deal
at the $54.20 per share price.

Now in a court filing released recently, it is revealed that Musk is under a Federal
Investigation regarding the $44 Billion deal.

connection with the acquisition of Twitter’, Attorneys for Potter Anderson Corroon LLP
wrote in a filing dated October 6

The lawyers representing the company have also further stated that they demand the
official documents shared between the Attorneys of the Billionaire with the Federal authorities but Musk’s team didn’t cooperate. As per the reports, they have cited ‘investigative privilege’ as their reason for not presenting the documents.

What did Mark Ruffalo comment on Elon Musk’s issue?

Recently Shutter Island star Mark Ruffalo also commented on the federal investigation
that has been done on Elon Musk. In a recent Tweet made by Ruffalo, the actor said
that Elon Musk is awesome and everything, but he shouldn’t be above the law.

Although the actor welcomed the Federal Investigation on the Billionaire, many fans
were divided. The main concern of the fans was mainly related to why the star admired
the personality so much. It can be said though that similar to many other Internet
brawls, this incident will also probably fade away soon and is unlikely to make much
impact on his career.

Now according to the Delaware Chancery Court, the proceedings of this case will be
halted till October 28 until the differences between the two parties are solved. A new
trial date would be announced in November if a deal is not settled between the two
parties.
