Bank of America Corp. (BAC), the largest U.S. bank by assets, reported a $1.24 bln fourth-quarter loss as costs mounted for refunds, writedowns and litigation tied to faulty mortgages.

The lender increased the amount set aside to cover mortgage disputes for the second time in less than a month and added $1.5 bln for legal expenses. – Bloomberg
