Samsung’s Chairman Ordered to Appear in India Case

India’s Supreme Court ordered Samsung Electronics Co. Chairman Lee Kun-Hee to appear before judges within six weeks in a dispute over a $1.4 million payment.

A two-judge panel directed Lee, South Korea’s richest person, to go before a court near New Delhi in connection with the case. The panel said it wasn’t expressing an opinion on the merits of the case involving the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India.
