(Energy Analytics Institute, Aaron Simonsky, 25.Jun.2019) — Lawyers defending Argentina and Burford Capital faced off in the court of Judge Loretta Preska in the first official trail appointment related to the nationalization of YPF since the Supreme Court declined Argentina’s request seeking to annul the suit in the U.S. Supreme Court of Justice, reported online media La Nación.
Following the decision of the court, lawyers for Argentina from the firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, and for YPF from the law firm Cravath, Swaine & Moore, submitted two separate briefs in which they anticipated new arguments. Lawyers had thought Judge Preska would dismiss the suit; thus, allowing the trial to continue in Argentina.
Preska established a 3 July deadline for Burford and Argentina for which both parties could present their arguments in writing, and summoned the audience for 11 July at 11 a.m.
