The U.S. Supreme Court handed Argentina two major disappointments Monday “in cases brought by bondholders who refused to accept reduced payments after the country’s 2001 default,” The New York Times Dealbook reports:

In a one-line order issued at 9:30 a.m., the court refused to hear Argentina’s appeal of a lower court’s decision requiring it to pay holdouts who did not participate in debt restructurings in 2005 and 2010. About 45 minutes later, the court issued a 7-to-1 decision allowing the bondholders to issue subpoenas to banks in an effort to trace Argentina’s assets abroad.

The holdouts include NML Capital, an affiliate of Elliott Management, the hedge fund founded by Paul Singer. It brought 11 lawsuits in federal court in Manhattan to collect the billions it said it was owed, winning each one.

The case the court declined to hear, Argentina v. NML Capital, No. 13-990, concerned the larger question of whether those rulings were correct.

In August, the United States Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, in New York, ruled that Argentina had, in DealBook’s description, “violated a contractual promise to treat all bondholders equally.”
