Washington Mutual Inc. says it has resolved disputes with JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. over some $4 billion at issue in the bank holding company's Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

A WaMu attorney told a judge Friday that JPMorgan has agreed to turn over the money to Washington Mutual after deducting $172 million in tax refunds that WaMu has already received.

In return, JPMorgan and the FDIC will get will get a major share of future tax refunds valued at about $5.6 billion.
