Lawyers for Carlos Ghosn asked a Tokyo court Tuesday to try the ex-Nissan Motor Co. boss separately from his former employer, arguing he would otherwise not get a fair hearing to fight charges of financial wrongdoing. The request marks the first major legal maneuver by Ghosn's new legal team since his release on bail last month, as he faces mounting accusations of financial misconduct during his time at the helm of Nissan and partners Renault and Mitsubishi Motors, one of the world's biggest automaking groups.Ghosn was arrested in Tokyo in November after Nissan told prosecutors its own investigation uncovered evidence of his wrongdoing.Ghosn, now ousted as chairman of Nissan, denies the charges, as does Kelly.Tokyo prosecutors were not immediately available to comment on Ghosn's lawyers' requests.
