The lawsuit accused traders at a dozen banks of improperly sharing confidential information about their clients' orders through electronic chat rooms, then using that information to make money at the expense of their clients.

In April, Bank of America had agreed to pay $180 million to settle the lawsuit. JPMorgan Chase settled for $99.5 million in January, and Switzerland's UBS settled for $135 million in March.
