The judge let Royal Park pursue claims including breach of contract, breach of trust, and violations of the federal Trust Indenture Act.Some other claims were dismissed. Royal Park contended that Bank of New York breached its duties in part out of fear it might anger or lose business from other financial services companies in retaliation.  Full Article
