Billionaire Elon Musk is seeking to delay until November a trial over his intention to back out of a $44  billion deal to buy Twitter.

Musk amended his complaint against the social media company, according to court filings.

He sent a fresh letter to Twitter after a whistleblower provided him with the latest ammunition.

Musk on Tuesday asked the judge to let both sides continue briefing their cases through November 10.

His proposal of delaying the trial followed by a conference to discuss what evidence they can  introduce at trial.

The billionaire said the trial could begin later that month "subject to  the court's availability."

Twitter Inc. wants the court to order Elon Musk to close the deal to buy the company for $54.20 per share.

In response, Musk filed a countersuit, accusing the social media company  of fraud.

Earlier, Musk allegedly stepped back from buying the social media  platform 'Twitter'.

The legal trial between Elon Musk and Twitter is scheduled to be held on October 17, 2022, however, it can  be postponed to a next date.
