I find it interesting that you mention this re the CME.
I remember years ago Richard Cornforth saying that huge blocks of old accounts (utility, phone, etc.) are divvied up in some back room of the (then) Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) for sale to the debt collection industry. Then later Jean Keating said something about court judgments being bought on the financial markets and that Walmart & some Chinese gov't element were big into buying these. The CRIS (Court Registry Investment System) no doubt ties into this somehow. Sure enough, at the time I found on some Chicago federal court website's court administrator page a link to the CBOT, said link having been promptly removed after this info came out.
Yup, it's all coming together. I think this is also, as you said during a call or interview in regards to the CAFR, their side of the usufruct.
