Musk previously subpoenaed Dorsey in August as part of his and Twitter’s legal battle over the termination of Musk’s $44 billion deal to buy the social media company. Dorsey, who express support for the Telsa chief executive’s bid earlier this year, co-founded Twitter and most recently served as its CEO from 2015 until Parag Agrawal took over in November.

Musk first sought to end his acquisition of Twitter in July, prompting Twitter to file a lawsuit against him. He later counter-sued the social media company, claiming it breached its obligations under the acquisition agreement by misrepresenting the total number of fake and spam accounts.
