Nissan Motor Co. has filed a lawsuit against its former executive Greg Kelly seeking about ¥1.4 billion ($11.7 million) in damages, accusing him of helping former CEO Carlos Ghosn underreport his remuneration, people familiar with the matter said Friday.

The case was lodged with the Yokohama District Court on Jan. 19 before Kelly, an American lawyer who was Ghosn’s right-hand man as a Nissan representative director, was given a six-month suspended jail sentence for falsifying the automaker’s financial report for fiscal 2017. The first hearing is scheduled on May 12.
