Japanese car group Nissan has offered a friendly settlement to a group of US investors to resolve the dispute over compensation paid to former company chief Carlos Ghosn.
These investors accuse the company of making misleading statements about the sums Ghosn received during his tenure as group chairman.
The “class action” is being brought against Nissan by the Jackson County Employee Pension Fund in Tennessee on behalf of him and other US investors.
U.S. District Judge William Campbell Jr., of Nashville federal court, on Wednesday granted a joint request by the plaintiffs and Nissan to halt legal proceedings with the goal of reaching an amicable settlement within 40 days.
Kelly was released on bail in Tokyo, where he has been on trial for a year for embezzlement at Nissan under Carlos Ghosn.
