Settlement talks between the U.S. Justice Department and JPMorgan Chase over mortgage bonds it sold in the run-up to the financial crisis have resumed, but a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of California said there wouldn't be an announcement Tuesday.

The DOJ had been close to filing a suit against the bank over its mortgage issues today.

JPMorgan executives said they want any potential legal settlement to be "reasonable" in size. The bank has been hoping to settle multiple mortgage probes together.
