“J.P. Morgan Criminal Case May Trigger OCC Action,” Wall Street Journal, October 25, 2013 C3

Morgan is convicted of criminal money-laundering, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency says it must hold hearings to determine whether to revoke the bank’s charter.  Oh, boy, that’s hard to explain to your former shareholders.  At issue is warnings the bank may or may not have received about Bernie Madoff.
