In case you needed another reminder that the banking industry’s legal problems are still quietly raging, this weekend brought four.
It wasn’t just J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. JPM , though weekend banking news certainly was dominated by reports that the bank could pay $13 billion to federal prosecutors to settle a host of civil probes over mortgage investments it sold and other matters.
Legal problems also cropped up for Bank of America Corp. BAC , UBS UBS and Deutsche Bank DB . Deutsche Bank is talking to some 50 employees as it examines whether its bankers manipulated the Libor interest rate, according to the German newspaper Handelsblatt. A former top banker from Switzerland-based UBS was arrested in Italy over the weekend, accused of helping wealthy American clients hide their money in Swiss bank accounts.
