Argentina: Does it Matter?

posted by Stephen Lubben

No its not a existential question, but rather a question for our two experts on sovereign debt (I'm not one of them).

Sure Argentina itself has lost, but remember that this is a federal case involving state law. A New York Court of Appeals opinion that says "that's not what a pari pasu clause means" – and I've previously noted that I don't think its supposed to be an anti-preference provision – kills the Second Circuit's opinion, no?

An Appellate Division opinion might even do the trick.

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois.

After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless (rlawless@illinois.edu) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy.
