SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Nissan Motor and the family of ousted Chairman Carlos Ghosn are battling over the right to enter a luxury apartment in Rio de Janeiro bought with the automaker's money for Ghosn's use.

The residence reportedly has artwork and safes, which Nissan considers evidence of Ghosn's alleged understatement of his compensation. The Ghosn family says they should have access to personal assets.
