Judicial hearings on the $1 billion lawsuit that Carlos Ghosn has filed against Nissan, the auto company he used to head, have begun, with lawyers from both sides meeting the judge charged with overseeing the case in Beirut.

The session lasted for about four hours at the Justice Palace in the Lebanese capital, with lawyers meeting with a judge from the Beirut prosecutor’s office, AP reported.

It is unclear when the next session will be held.
