In another development, Twitter, once known as X, filed a lawsuit in federal court against Media Matters after the research publication demonstrated that ads on X appeared next to antisemitic content.
Epic Games’ CEO, Tim Sweeney, finally testified in a San Francisco federal courthouse on Monday in the company’s legal battle against Google. This was a highly anticipated day in court for the gaming company.
