The group's boss, Juergen Schrempp, will testify on December 9.
The group's financial director, Manfred Gentz, also will take the stand, but a date has not been set.
Commercial vehicle chief Eckhard Cordes, who played a major role in the fusion of Daimler-Benz and Chrysler, will give evidence December 16 at the court in Wilmington, Delaware.
Last summer DaimlerChrysler agreed to pay a $300 million settlement to small US investors. Kerkorian rejected a settlement and demanded $1 billion, saying that he had been cheated in his position as a large Chrysler investor. He said that the so-called "fusion between equals" in 1998 was really a takeover. Schrempp stated this in an interview in 2000. Kerkorian could have demanded a higher fee in addition to the price for his shares if the deal was deemed a takeover.
The trial will end on the December 17. A verdict is not to be expected until next spring.
