EX-JP MORGAN banker Ian Hannam as been given a provisional tribunal date at which he will get his chance to fight against market abuse accusations from the Financial Services Authority (FSA).
The tribunal has been pencilled in for early July, more than a year after he stepped down from his job to try to clear his name.
Hannam was given a £450,000 fine by the regulator after he was accused of disclosing inside information to clients in two emails.
He rejects the claims.
The FSA has until September to hold the hearing.
