On June 1, 2010, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit decided a case with broad implications for issuers of limited recourse notes. This is particularly applicable in the context of structured finance transactions and notes issued by special purpose entities. In The Bank of New York v. First Millennium, Inc., the Second Circuit found that the holders of notes issued by a trust of which The Bank of New York (BNY) was trustee, in favor of NextBank, N.A. (NextBank) had a valid claim to all assets held in the trust despite a limited recourse provision in the indenture.
