Church Accuses JPMorgan of Mismanagement of Trust Funds

ChurchChrist Church Cathedral is suing JPMorgan Chase for self-dealing and mismanaging trust funds. JP Morgan resigned as trustee last December. The church became the beneficiary of the trusts after wealthy humanitarian Eli Lilly, Jr. died in 1997, leaving a large donation to the church in the form of the trusts. The church is alleging that JPMorgan lost $13million of trust funds by making investment decisions that benefited the bank.
