TOKYO — After running the gauntlet through Japan's justice system for the past three years, former Nissan director Greg Kelly was triumphantly escorted to the Tokyo airport last month by the U.S. ambassador to fly home to Tennessee.
Kelly may now be back home, but he is hardly home free. The former human resources executive's legal battles keep compounding.
Kelly's defense team is appealing the criminal count on which he was found guilty in early March. Tokyo prosecutors are appealing the other counts on which he was cleared. And Nissan Motor Co. has filed a civil suit against Kelly in Japan claiming ¥1.4 billion ($11.5 million) in damages.
