In Republic of Argentina v. NML Capital, Ltd.,134 S. Ct. 2250 (2014) (No. 12-842),plaintiff had filed actions in the Southern District of New York to collect on defaulted bonds issued by the defendant, the Republic of Argentina.  After plaintiff secured a judgment, it issued subpoenas to two non-party banks, seeking information concerning defendant’s assets located outside of the United States.  The district court granted plaintiff’s motion to compel in connection with the subpoenas, and the Second Circuit affirmed the order.  The Supreme Court also affirmed, rejecting defendant Argentina’s argument that such discovery would violate the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.  The Court ruled that because the Act does not expressly grant foreign-sovereigns immunity from post-judgment discovery concerning their extraterritorial assets, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure govern.  Inasmuch as FRCP 69(a)(2) generally permits discovery of judgment debtors for purposes of aiding in the execution of a judgment, the Court concluded that, assuming the district court properly exercised its discretion to order such discovery under FRCP 69(a)(2), there was no basis to quash the discovery at issue.
