Vodafone's India Supreme Court hearing delayed
Reports from India suggest that the start of the Vodafone Supreme Court hearing is to be delayed.
The highly-anticipated case is scheduled to start on July 19 but an overrunning case at the court will likely force a delay.
This is the third time the case has been delayed. The case was initially meant to be heard in October 2010.
It is unknown when the case will start but the last week of July or the first week of August is being suggested.
The dispute revolves around Vodafone buying a 67% stake in Indian cellular operator Hutchison Essar from the Hong Kong-based Hutchison Telecommunications. The Indian authorities claim Vodafone is liable for a $2.5 billion withholding tax bill.
