For Marketplace Morning Report, Thur., Oct. 13, 2011

JP Morgan Chase said this morning that it made 4.3 billion dollars in profit last quarter. That’s down compared to the same period last year — thanks to a drop in investment banking, which is not surprising given the slowdown in corporate deal-making. An Australian court handed Apple a win, and banned Samsung from selling its new Galaxy tablet down under. We hear from Republican Congressman David Schweikert about his take on Occupy Wall Street.
