MADRID (Reuters) – A Madrid court on Monday called UBS <UBSG.S> chairman Axel Weber to speak as a witness in a trial that will kick off on March 10 next year between Santander <SAN.MC> and Italian banker Andrea Orcel over a withdrawn CEO job offer.

Legal teams of both parties told the preliminary hearing that they did not want an out-of-court deal.

The judge also called Santander’s chairman Ana Botin and secretary board general Jaime Perez Renovales as witnesses for the trial.
