Atherton v. Fdic, 519 U.S. 213 (1997)

JUSTICE O’CONNOR, with whom JUSTICE SCALIA and JUSTICE THOMAS join, concurring in part and concurring in the judgment.

I join all of the Court’s opinion except to the extent that it relies on the notably unhelpful legislative history to 12 U.S.C. § 1821(k). Ante at 228-230. As the Court correctly points out, the most natural reading of the savings clause in § 1821(k) covers both state and federal rights. Ante at 228. With such plain statutory language in hand, there is no reason to rely on legislative history that is, as the majority recognizes, "not all on one side." Ante at 229.
