Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports that Citigroup Inc. is facing tough odds as it tries to persuade an appeals court that disgruntled Revlon Inc. creditors should give back more than half a billion dollars the bank accidentally sent them last year.

A trio of federal judges in Manhattan will hear arguments from both sides on Wednesday as it weighs a lower court’s surprise decision that the lenders can keep the money -- a decision Citigroup’s main banking unit calls a misapplication of the law that sent “shockwaves through the markets.”

Citibank, which sued the lenders for the money last year, could get the decision overturned, but it won’t be easy, said Bloomberg Intelligence senior litigation analyst Elliott Stein. It would require the appeals panel to dial back the lenders’ key legal defense “in a way that undermines finality in business transactions and shifts responsibility for catching errors to creditors,” he said.
