On March 1, the Second Circuit directed Argentina to inform the Court “how and when it proposes to make current those debt obligations on the original bonds that have gone unpaid over the last 11 years.” As we read that Order, the focus of the Court’s question (particularly when read in light of the oral argument, held just two days before the Court issued this order) was on the words “make current…the original bonds.”
