The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals will soon hear arguments in a legal battle that has been described in the media as “the landmark sovereign debt default case of the century”: NML v.

The case, it is said, will set “an important legal precedent,” upon which might rest the future of the secondary debt market.
