RusAl Lawyers Miss Hearing

United Company RusAl said a Caribbean judge started hearings in its dispute with Norilsk Nickel before its lawyers could appear in court.

A judge flew into Nevis unexpectedly to hold the hearings over the weekend, before RusAl's London-based lawyers could attend the proceedings, RusAl said Monday.

The judge lifted a freeze on Norilsk's ability to vote as much as 15 percent of its shares held by subsidiaries amid a dispute with RusAl over management at Norilsk — which is 25 percent owned by RusAl.
