Legal Bills Wipe out JPMorgan Chase???s Profits (Fox Business)

For the first time under the tenure of long-time CEO Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase posted a loss in the third quarter. While earnings were in line with Wall Street???s estimate, the firm had $9.2 billion in legal expenses. JPMorgan Chase anticipates additional legal costs stemming from federal and state probes on multiple regulatory fronts; therefore, the bank has set aside an additional $13.8 billion for settlements, fines and other legal expenses.
