AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The district court of Rotterdam on Monday said it would hear the case that EssilorLuxottica (ESLX.PA) has filed against its acquisition target GrandVision (GVNV.AS) on August 10.

EssilorLuxottica said on Saturday it had filed a legal action to obtain information from GrandVision about its management of the coronavirus crisis, as it felt the eyewear group might have breached promises in the takeover deal.

GrandVision said it strongly disagreed with the demands from its prospective buyer.
