  • Twitter Inc agreed in June to pay $7 million to settle a compensation dispute with the whistleblower Peiter “Mudge” Zatko whose allegations will be part of Elon Musk’s case against the company.
  • The settlement resolved a dispute about unpaid compensation and did not prevent him from filing a whistleblower complaint, which he did soon after reaching the agreement with Twitter.
