JPMorgan Chase & Co., the biggest U.S. bank by assets, was sued over mortgage-backed securities sold to Dexia SA (DEXB) because the loans underlying the securities were allegedly riskier than promised. Dexia accused JPMorgan and companies it acquired — Bear Stearns Cos. and Washington Mutual — of “egregious fraud,” saying they created and sold mortgage bonds backed by loans that they knew to be “exceptionally bad."
