JP Morgan pays $20m in Lehman case

Regulators say US bank mishandled customer funds, contributing to start of 2008 financial crisis.

    Financial giant JP Morgan Chase will pay $20m to settle claims from former customers that the bank mishandled their funds. 
     
    US regulators said JP Morgan extended too much credit to Lehman Brothers in the years before the former US banking firm went bankrupt. The Lehman Brothers collapse was viewed as a major contributor to the 2008 financial crisis.
