Here's the Contempt Order. Really.

posted by Mark Weidemaier

Not much new to say from the last time, except that this contempt order was signed by the judge. Argentina must "reverse entirely" the steps it has taken to remove BNY-Mellon and install a new trustee and otherwise start "complying completely" with the injunction. Or else....? The order doesn't say.

So, Argentina has been ordered to stop violating orders. If it doesn't, it will be in violation of another order. Which means basically nothing. Perhaps there was some doubt as to whether the judge meant the injunction as sort of a suggestion? Or perhaps this signals that the judge plans to skip the whole unenforceable-monetary-fine thing and get right to more innovative contempt sanctions if (when) Argentina fails to comply. Or maybe the order is an attempt to defer the confrontation as long as possible. Yawn. Wake me when something interesting happens.
