X and Mr. Musk have been sued by multiple former employees. In particular, in a Delaware court, 2,200 former employees, led by former employee Chris Woodfield, are proceeding with an arbitration award against X and Musk, with X paying over 500 million yen in arbitration fees alone.

A new foreign media outlet, Bloomberg, obtained a memo sent to a former employee by attorney Shannon Lis Riordan, who represents the former employee, from an anonymous former Twitter employee. 'After 10 months of lobbying from all sides, we were able to bring Twitter to the negotiating table,' the memo said. 'Twitter would like to speak with us to resolve our claims. I believe that.'' The memo also stated that private negotiations were scheduled for December 1, 2023 and December 2, 2023.

'We are honored to represent nearly 2,000 former Twitter employees in individual arbitrations and in more than a dozen class actions in court,' Rhys Riordan told Bloomberg. We work hard to make sure we get paid.”
