Twitter Inc. called Elon Musk’s opposition to a speedy trial for its case against the billionaire a tactical delay and said his proposed timeline is “calculated to complicate and obfuscate.”

The social-media company argued Monday in a legal filing in Delaware Chancery Court that the public dispute harms Twitter every day that Mr. Musk is in breach of their $44 billion merger agreement. Twitter reiterated that the court should set trial by mid-September, on an expedited schedule.
