Legal Bills Pile Up at Banks
Each quarter banks report their worst-case estimates of costs tied to lawsuits and regulatory probes. Some banks reported lower figures in recent quarters, but others are braced to spend more to resolve legacy issues. New legal threats loom, too.

Bair's policy proposals make a great deal of sense. The FDIC as insurer should have sole responsibility for regulating and closing banks. There should be one regulator for everything else, not housed in the Treasury or Fed where access to bailout funds is too easy.

This is a very complex set of issues. The process should begin with regulations and regulators for "too big to fail" banks and a different approach for community banks that avoid the risk taking bets by simply serving their communities.

What was once "rumored" as "tension" between Bair and Geithner during the crisis is now clearly settled. There was no tension but rather disdain and a lack of trust between the two. Bair pulls no punches in throwing "Tim" under the bus.
