NEW DELHI -- The Tata group, India's largest conglomerate, went to the Supreme Court on Thursday to challenge a tribunal's earlier order to reinstate ousted leader Cyrus Mistry.

The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal ruled Dec. 18 that holding company Tata Sons had broken the law when removing Mistry as chairman in October 2016 and replacing him with Natarajan Chandrasekaran in early 2017.
