Bank Of America Wants Meeting With Attorney General Holder

It looks like Bank of America is looking for a deal.

Bank of America is apparently done talking to Justice Department attorneys and wants to go straight to the top dog. CEO Brian Moynihan has asked to meet with Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss a deal on mortgage fraud litigation, Reuters reports.

This type of request is unusual as meetings are usually brokered between law enforcement officials and company lawyers. It looks as if Bank of America is following in the footsteps of JPMorgan Chase, which settled a big case for $13 billion shortly after meeting with Holder.
