Stocks to Watch: JPMorgan, Boeing, Ford, GM

NEW YORK -- JPMorgan Chase (JPM) is reportedly being accused of fraud by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Schneiderman has filed a civil complaint against the bank related to its alleged role in the sale of toxic residential mortgage-backed securities.

The suit is the first to be filed "under the aegis of a law enforcement group that was formed by President Barack Obama in January to pursue alleged wrongdoing related to the financial crisis," the Journal said, and similar actions against JPMorgan's investment bank brethren -- Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), and Morgan Stanley (MS) as well as other players in the crisis -- could follow.

The suit relates to billions of dollars worth of subprime mortgage securities issued by Bear Stearns, which JPMorgan later bought when it fell into distressed straits in 2008.

J.P. Morgan Chase spokesman Joseph Evangelisti told the newspaper the bank intends to contest the allegations, and that it is "disappointed" that the attorney general's office "decided to pursue its civil action without ever offering us an opportunity to rebut the claims."
