Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) recently reentered the courtrooms to settle a legal dispute that it had thought was already resolved. Brought back to life, the case revolves around 22 investors and an $8.5 billion settlement deal that some say isĀ  too small for the matter at hand. Leading the charge against approval of the settlement is AIG (NYSE:AIG), which has some new evidence that may sway the judge to its side.

In the video below, Motley Fool contributor Jessica Alling discusses the case, AIG's evidence, and what it means for the bank and its investors.
