Argentina v. NML Capital

by Ed Whelan

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Argentina v. NML Capital, which involves a post-judgment discovery dispute in litigation arising from Argentina’s defaults on its bond obligations. (I’ve previously highlighted Argentina’s stated determination to defy our nation’s courts and the oddity of the Obama administration’s decision, nonetheless, to support Argentina’s position on the particular discovery dispute.) On Opinio Juris, law professor Michael Ramsey has an admirably clear post spelling out exactly what is at issue in the case and explaining why Argentina ought to lose.
