US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Manhattan this Wednesday morning will hear Argentina’s appeal against US Judge Thomas Griesa’s order to Argentine banks to provide information on the state’s assets.
The hearing will take place at the 17th floor of the Court’s building in Foley Square at 10 am. Argentine and the holdout creditors' lawyers will have 15 minutes each before the judges.

Argentina’s lawyer Carmine Boccuzi stated that Griesa’s ruling is “simply harassment” and that the discovery requests “violate Vienna Conventions, Federal rulings and the Court’s precedent.
