JACKSON, Miss. -- Discussions about a multibillion dollar hybrid car plant in Mississippi have been revealed in a federal lawsuit in which Chinese businessmen are fighting for control of the company.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Oxford and unsealed this week.

U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills says the lawsuit is an "extraordinarily complex case involving a $6.5 billion project, proposed to be financed by Chinese investors, to build a hybrid car factory in Tunica, Mississippi."
