The fees were the highest ever for the top five banks in a single year. The last five-year average was $13 billion.

Huge reduction expected

JPMorgan Chase might face a substantial reduction in judgment to ~$90 million in a lawsuit. The lawsuit claims that JPMorgan Chase mismanaged an estate. The lawsuit brought a jury verdict of $8 billion in punitive damages in September. However, JPMorgan Chase is seeking to reverse the entire judgment.
