Former Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and former head of legal Vijaya Gadde are suing the company for unpaid legal bills.
According to The New York Times, the three former Twitter executives accumulated more than $1 million in legal fees responding to SEC and Justice Department inquiries. The inquiries began before Elon Musk purchased the company, while the executives were still employed by the social media platform.
The executives say they were fired without being paid the compensation and severance they were owed. In addition, the lawsuit alleges that Twitter’s bylaws and existing agreements guarantee that the company will pay legal fees incurred in the line of work.
This isn’t the first time Twitter has been accused of being a deadbeat company when it comes to paying its bills. The company is already facing multiple lawsuits for refusing to pay
“Once again, Twitter has failed to honor its contractual obligations to pay its bills,” Aaron Zamost, a spokesman for Mr. Segal and Ms. Gadde, said in a statement.
