Bloomberg News reports that Christ Church Cathedral sued the bank last year, saying it selected unsuitable and poorly performing investments, causing the church trusts to lose $13m in value from July 2004 to December 2013.

He faulted its lawyers for lumping together disparate JPMorgan units in its court papers and said their allegations lacked specificity.
