TOKYO (Reuters) – Attorneys for ousted Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn may appeal a court decision to block him from attending a board meeting this week, his lead lawyer said on Monday, adding that Nissan had strongly opposed his attendance.

“Nissan’s strong opposition to Ghosn’s attendance is very regrettable,” lawyer Junichiro Hironaka told reporters.

The Tokyo District Court said on Monday it had denied Ghosn’s request to attend Tuesday’s board meeting.
