MILAN (Reuters) - An Italian court will decide after April 30 on French media group Vivendi’s request to suspend a lawsuit over a damage request from broadcaster Mediaset, a legal source said on Tuesday.

Mediaset is seeking 3 billion euros ($3.4 billion) in damages from Vivendi after the French group backtracked on a deal to buy Mediaset’s pay-TV unit Premium in July 2016.($1 = 0.8770 euros)
