Sure, let's talk. Why not?

Ever since his controversial ruling that one should pay one’s bills vis-à-vis Argentina, said country has done little but insult and ignore U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa. So he could perhaps be forgiven for wondering whether he should abide by his own decision that those freeloading on Paul Singer’s campaign should make themselves known by two months ago.

The 'me too' creditors, who did not make up the group of litigants led by hedge fund owner Paul Singer which obtained a favourable ruling from Griesa in their battle against Argentina, will meet with the judge on May 29 to make their case to be included in the pari passu definition….

Griesa had previously set the limit for new claims as March 2, upholding a request from the lawyers of the Argentine government to restrict further litigation.
