MADRID (Reuters) - A Madrid court has set for April 7 a hearing of the case brought by Italian banker Andrea Orcel against Santander over the bank's withdrawal of an offer to make him CEO, the court said in a statement.

Initially, the hearing had been scheduled to take place on March 10 but was postponed after the judge handling the case had to quarantine after being in contact with a person with COVID-19.
