Kathmandu. Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has withdrawn the lawsuit he filed three months ago against the artificial intelligence (AI) company OpenAI and its two co-founders, Sam Altman and Greg Brockman.

Musk’s lawyers filed a request on Tuesday in the Superior Court of California, San Francisco, to dismiss the case. The reasons for withdrawing the lawsuit were not disclosed by his legal team. The court had scheduled a hearing on Wednesday to consider OpenAI’s request to dismiss the case.

In other news this week, Apple, the maker of iPhones, announced a new partnership with OpenAI. Musk had criticized this partnership on social media and had threatened to impose restrictions on iPhones in his companies.

With the withdrawal of the lawsuit, the lengthy legal battle between Musk and OpenAI has come to an end for now. However, Musk’s decision to withdraw without prejudice means he could potentially refile the lawsuit in the future.

Accusing OpenAI of prioritizing profit over the original mission and commitment to developing AI for the benefit of humanity, Musk had initiated the lawsuit against OpenAI and its co-founders Altman and Brockman in February.

Elon Musk had accused OpenAI of breaking a prior agreement by making a significant AI breakthrough achieved through a $1 billion investment deal with Microsoft public, which was intended to be shared publicly for the benefit of AI development.

OpenAI denied Musk’s allegations as unfounded and trivial. They clarified that there was no agreement or understanding with Musk when the company was established.

Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla, a prominent electric vehicle manufacturer, and also owns the social media platform X. He has been involved in a longstanding dispute with Sam Altman, Greg Brockman, and others since they co-founded OpenAI in 2015, contributing $4.4 million to the company’s initial funding.

However, disagreements arose regarding the company’s direction, leading Musk to resign from OpenAI in 2018. Last year, Musk started his own AI startup called XAI.
