Puerto Rico Court of First Instance Rules the PR Government Must Provide Valid Basis for Annulment 2012 Closing Agreement.

Court Ruled the PR Government's Stated Basis for Annulment is not valid under Puerto Rico law

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Monday, June 16, 2014, the Court of First Instance issued a ruling that said that the Puerto Rico Treasury Department has five days from the day of the ruling to notify Doral as to the basis of the annulment of 2012 Closing Agreement. The accepted bases for annulment are limited to events of fraud, malfeasance or misrepresentation of material facts.

The Court also determined that the purported annulment by the Treasury Department of the Closing Agreement is not a final decision, but rather is only a preliminary adverse determination to commence a formal adjudicative process, thereby providing Doral its opportunity to challenge the decision through an administrative proceeding before the Treasury Department, and affording Doral the benefits of due process of law.
