On August 20th, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit considered the scope of discovery available to a plaintiff with a valid judgment against a foreign sovereign. The trial court ordered two non-party banks to comply with subpoenas seeking information about Argentina's assets located outside the U.S. Argentina argues that the banks' compliance with the subpoenas would infringe on its sovereign immunity. The Court held that because the trial court ordered discovery only (not the attachment of sovereign property) and because the discovery was directed at the third-party banks, Argentina's sovereign immunity was not affected.
