Court Gives Musk Access to Docs from Fired Twitter Exec: Report

August 17th, 2022 5:03 PM

On Monday, the Delaware Court of Chancery ruled that Twitter must give Elon Musk documents from its former head of consumer product.

The Verge reported that although Musk requested documents from 22 Twitter employees, the court granted just one of his requests. According to an order obtained by, Judge Kathaleen McCormick ordered Twitter to “collect, review, and produce documents from Kayvon Beykpour.”

The court ordered that Twitter produce documents from a previously agreed 41 custodians in addition to Beykpour. "The plaintiff is not required to collect, review, or produce documents from any other of the defendants’ proposed 22 additional custodians," the order reads. "The plaintiff need only collect, review, and produce documents from the 41 custodians to which plaintiff has agreed to date and Mr. Beykpour."

Twitter fired Beykpour in May when company CEO Parag Agrawal decided to “take the [company] in a different direction,” Beykpour tweeted.

In a podcast recorded last year, The Verge said that as the head of consumer product, Beykpour was “responsible for deciding what tools Twitter actually builds for people to express themselves.”

MRC Free Speech America reported earlier this month that Musk said his deal to purchase the platform for $44 billion would move forward if Twitter provided proof of real accounts. The “proof” Musk is asking for would presumably end Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk and his countersuit against the company.
