DUBLIN (Reuters) - The Irish High Court will rule on Monday Dec. 23 on whether Ryanair (RYA.I) can prevent its operations chief Peter Bellew from joining arch-rival easyJet (EZJ.L) until 2021, a court official said on Friday.
Ryanair has argued that Bellew possesses information of competitive value and that he is bound by a non-compete clause.
Former Malaysia Airlines boss Bellew denies he is subject to the clause and plans to start working with the British airline at the start of 2020 after completing a six-month notice period.
The verdict had been due on Friday, but was delayed, the official said.
