An Australian project management company has sued Twitter in a US court, seeking cumulative payments of about A$1 million ($665,000) for allegedly failing to pay invoices for work completed in four countries, according to court filings.
Sydney-based Facilitate Corp. filed the lawsuit on June 29 in the District Court for the Northern District of California, alleging breach of contract over Twitter’s default in paying its bills.
The lawsuit filed by the Australian company is the latest alleging non-payment of dues and rents against Twitter since Elon Musk bought the social media platform for $44 billion last year, according to Reuters, which was seen by Al Arabiya.net.
Facilitat said that from 2022 through early 2023, it installed sensors in Twitter’s offices in London and Dublin, completed an office in Singapore, and authorized an office in Sydney.
For these businesses, Facilitate said, Twitter owed the company £203,000, S$546,600 and A$61,300 respectively.
Facilitate said it was seeking damages in an amount to be determined at trial, legal costs and interest at the maximum legal rate.
In May, a former public relations firm sued in a New York court, saying Twitter had not paid it, while US-based consulting firm Innisfree M&A sued early this year, seeking about $1.9 million due to unpaid bills. , after she advised Twitter about Musk’s acquisition.
Crown real estate, an independent trading company that manages the monarchy’s property portfolio, began court proceedings in January over alleged unpaid rent for Twitter’s London headquarters.
