ELON MUSK UNDER INVESTIGATION, TWITTER MENTIONS IN COURT.
While the filing said he was under investigation, it did not say what was the exact focus of the probes and which federal authorities were conducting them.
Twitter, which sued Musk in July to force him to close the deal, said attorneys for the Tesla Inc CEO had claimed "investigative privilege" when refusing to hand over documents it had sought.
In late September, Musk's attorneys had provided a "privilege log" identifying documents to be withheld, Twitter said. The log referenced drafts of a May 13 email to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and a slide presentation to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
