Legal costs continued to cut into J.P. Morgan Chase’s profits as the company posted its first quarterly loss on CEO Jamie Dimon’s watch in last year’s third quarter. The banking giant was forced to dole out more than $20 billion in 2013 to resolve legal issues, including penalties related to its sale of dubious mortgage securities in the lead-up to the financial crisis as well as the bank’s failure to act on suspicions concerning Bernie Madoff’s epic Ponzi scheme. The company braced for impact by squirreling away billions in anticipation of the payouts, but yearly profits still dipped almost 16% to $17.9 billion.
