Court filings has showed that a lawsuit has been filed by an Australian project management company, Facilitate Corporation against Twitter on June 29 in a US court, seeking cumulative payments of about A$1 million ($665,000) over alleged non-payment of bills for work done in four countries.
On the same date, the company filed the suit in the United States District Court for the Northern District Of California claiming breach of contract over Twitter’s failure to pay its invoices, CNN reports.
Since Elon Musk bought the social media platform for $44 billion last year, the lawsuit is the latest alleging non-payment of bills and rent against Twitter.
According to the Sydney-based private company, from 2022 through early 2023, it installed sensors in Twitter’s offices in London and Dublin, completed an office fit-out in Singapore and cleared an office in Sydney.
Facilitate also revealed that for those works, Twitter owed the company about 203,000 pounds ($257,000), S$546,600 ($404,000) and A$61,300 ($40,700), respectively.
Interestingly, Twitter also known as X Corp, no longer has a media relations office.
But Facilitate stated that it was seeking compensatory damages in an amount to be determined at trial, legal costs and interest at the maximum legal rate.
Early this year, US-based advisory firm, Innisfree M&A sued it, seeking about $1.9 million for what it said were unpaid bills after it advised Twitter on its acquisition by Musk, while in May, a former public relations firm filed a suit in a New York court saying Twitter had not paid its bills.
Britain’s Crown Estate, an independent commercial business that manages the property portfolio belonging to the monarchy, in January began court proceedings over alleged unpaid rent on Twitter’s London headquarters.
