Twitter has been taken to court for not paying $136,250 in rent for its San Francisco office. According to Bloomberg, the landlord, Columbia Reit – 650 California LLC, had given the company a deadline of December 16 to pay the rent or be in default. The company, which is leased and located on the 30th floor of the Hartford Building, has failed to meet this requirement, as stated in a complaint filed by Columbia Reit on Thursday in state court in San Francisco.

According to a complaint filed by Columbia Reit on Thursday in state court in San Francisco, Twitter has failed to meet its rental obligations. This information was previously reported by the New York Times on December 13, which stated that the social media company had not paid rent on its headquarters or any of its other global offices for several weeks.

In addition to the current lawsuit regarding unpaid rent, Twitter was also sued earlier this month for failing to pay for two charter flights. Private Jet Services Group LLC is claiming that it is owed $197,725 for a flight from Teterboro, New Jersey to San Francisco on October 26 and a return flight the following day, which was the same day that Elon Musk completed the acquisition of Twitter. The passenger on the flights, Berland, was terminated from the company in early November along with approximately half of Twitter’s workforce.

According to a contract between (PJS) and Twitter, a designated representative from the social media company was supposed to book charter flights. However, PJS claims that this requirement was not always followed and that flights were instead booked through emails and text messages and paid for without issue prior to Elon Musk’s takeover of the company.

Twitter, which does not have a media department, has not commented on the situation. The legal case, which is being held in the Superior Court of California in San Francisco, is officially titled Columbia Reit – 650 California LLC v. Twitter Inc., CGC-22-603719.
