Although that might seem like common sense to you and me, it was something of an open question in the syndicated loan market after Citibank lost out on a bid last year to recoup more than half a billion dollars of its own funds that it mistakenly wired to payoff syndicated loans taken out by Revlon Inc. (You might remember the team at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan that won a bench trial in the case of Citibank’s “big oops” took home “Litigator of the Week” honors last year.)
