Aurelius Capital Ptnrs., LP v. Argentina, No. 08-5621

In defendant Republic of Argentina's appeal from the district court's orders of attachment and execution entered in late 2008 over Argentine social security funds, the order is reversed where: 1) nonparty Argentine social security administration was clearly affected by the order and thus had standing to appeal; and 2) the funds were not subject to attachment because they were not being used for a commercial activity in the United States as of the effective date of the Argentine legislation transferring the funds to the control of the administration.
