The complaint seeks to recover nearly $1 billion in fees and profits and an additional $5.4 billion in
damages for JPMC’s decades-long role as BLMIS’s primary banker, aiding and abetting Madoff’s
fraud. All recovered monies will be placed into the Customer Fund and distributed, pro rata, to
Madoff customers with valid claims, the rightful owners of those monies.
“JP Morgan was willfully blind to the fraud, even after learning about numerous red flags surrounding Madoff,” said David J. Sheehan, counsel for the Trustee and a partner at Baker & Hostetler LLP, the court-appointed counsel for the Trustee. “While many financial institutions enabled Madoff’s fraud, JPMC was at the very center of that fraud, and thoroughly complicit in it. JPMC was BLMIS’s primary banker for more than 20 years, and was responsible for knowing the business of its customers – in this case, a very large customer. Madoff would not have been able to commit this massive Ponzi scheme without this bank. JPMC should pay the price for its central role in enabling Madoff’s fraud.”
