JPMorgan Legal Liabilities: An Update

In honor of the five-year anniversary of the Fall of the House of Madoff (Wednesday, if it’s not already a fixture in your Outlook calendar), we bring you an update on the House of Morgan’s latest negotiations with a representative of the U.S. government, this time over whether it should have filed a form that probably would have been ignored or ineptly investigated anyway, in which it would have suggested that maybe something was amiss on the 17th floor of 885 Third.

Reverend Who Put A Hex On JP Morgan Needs Your Help

Back in October, a man who goes by the name of Reverend Billy, AKA Bill Talen, appeared at JP Morgan to protest the bank’s financing of “mountaintop removal, dirty coal, fracking, and other types of fossil fuel extraction.” He did so by entering the building, along with members of his Stop Shopping choir who were dressed as frogs, heading up to the third floor (where wealth management offices are located), and belting out a tune on the subject. The Reverend delivered a sermon about JP Morgan’s role in climate change (via its investments), and his flock passed out informational pamphlets to clients and employees. They exited stage left and shortly thereafter, Billy and his choir director were arrested while waiting for the F train.

This was not the first time Reverend Billy publicly took issue with what JP Morgan does with its money (in June 2010 he put a “holy hex” on the bank), nor was it a first time a man of the cloth paid a visit to the House of Dimon (in March 2011, a church group led by one “Bishop Cush” performed an exorcism on the steps of 270 Park Avenue, sprinkling holy water on the building in an effort to “chase the demons out of Chase”).

But something about this particular exercise struck a chord and now, the Reverend is facing up to 1 year in prison. That’s where you come in. Read more »

Been thinking about TP’ing your CEO’s house? Or placing a massive trade that, let’s be honest, probably won’t work out and will ultimately cost the firm billions? Or taking the keys to your boss’s vintage Ferrari and driving some colleagues uptown for a joy ride, and when confronted about, claim you thought the office had a “what’s mine is yours” policy? Or dressing up as his wife for Halloween? Thanks to a new compensation plan being considered by London bank, now you can? Read more »
