The ongoing unfair dismissal fight between former general manager Alan Eldridge and Wagga City Council will be heard before the Supreme Court in Wagga.
The Supreme Court hearing of the action taken by Mr Eldridge against the council is due to begin on Tuesday and will likely continue for two weeks.
Until now, the civil matter - which has been ongoing since court proceedings began in 2018 - has been mentioned on a number of occasions in the Supreme Court in Sydney.
Mr Eldridge is suing the council after his four-year contract - worth about $400,000 a year - was terminated in May 2017, 13 months after he took on the role.
The former GM claims he was sacked without notice and without justification.

In his statement of claim, filed in September 2018, Mr Eldridge said he had carried out his duties as GM in accordance with the terms of his employment agreement and did not commit any act that entitled the council to dismiss him.
He is claiming damages for the breach of contract, interest on damages and costs.
Mr Eldridge claims he lost the opportunity for ongoing employment with the council and that "in all reasonable likelihood" would have continued in the role of GM until his contract ended in April last year, if his job had not been summarily terminated.
The council said it would not be making any public comment on the matter while it is before the court.
The matter has been listed before Justice Andrew Bell and its hearings are scheduled each day this week and all of next week.
