Justice Saliann Scarpulla of New York state court in Manhattan, took over the case this week, and has agreed to delay the decision. According to lawyers involved in the case, the decision will be delayed from taking effect until at least February 19. Justice Barbara Kapnick is the Judge who approved the settlement with the investors, and according to The New York Times, was promoted to a state appeals court.

A spokesman for Bank of America, Lawrence Grayson, declined to comment on the delay. Kevin Heine, a spokesman for Bank of New York Mellon declined to comment on the issue as well.

The lawyer representing the 22 investors, Kenneth Warner, wrote in a letter to the judge that a delay would be “prejudicial to the thousands of certificate holders who are waiting for the settlement proceeds to be distributed.”
