NEW YORK/BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - The mediator in Argentina's decade-long legal battle with creditors over unpaid debt said he would issue a "significant statement" later on Friday after presiding over a week of intense talks in New York between the two sides. The festering dispute in U.S. courts is one of the longest in sovereign bond restructuring history, stemming from Argentina's historic default on $100 billion in 2002.

Two top executives at Bridgewater Associates LP, the world's largest hedge fund, want a dozen senior employees and stakeholders to vote on their character to help resolve an apparent dispute between them, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. Citing people familiar with the matter, it said Bridgewater founder Ray Dalio and his presumed heir apparent, Greg Jensen, were asking the firm's management and stakeholders to take a stand in the vote about each other's conduct. Dalio, who founded Bridgewater in 1975, is specifically questioning whether or not Jensen has "integrity" - defined in a 123-page treatise written by Dalio as never saying something about a person that you wouldn't tell the person directly.
A federal judge on Friday said Allergan Plc's planned generic version of a drug meant to treat epilepsy infringed patents belonging to Supernus Pharmaceuticals Inc. Shares of Supernus soared as much as 44 percent after the decision was issued. Supernus sells Oxtellar XR, a once-a-day tablet used to treat partial epilepsy seizures in adults and children over the age of six, and sued the former Actavis Inc to stop it from selling a generic version. Actavis, now known as Allergan, had filed with U.S. regulators to sell its generic in March 2013, less than two months after Oxtellar XR was launched.
