This final note today, in which the big banks get a big win. This afternoon, a federal judge in New York dismissed a big chunk of the lawsuits against banks involved in the LIBOR scandal. The interest rate fixing — well, I dunno if I can call it a scam anymore — from last year.

Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and others had been on the hook.
