(Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation sued Bank of America Corp <BAC.N> over $542 million in deposit insurance which it says the second-largest U.S. bank "refuses to pay," according to a complaint filed Monday in a U.S. district court.


Bank of America believes it is compliant with the rules, according to a bank spokesman, who said the dispute is over a "technical disagreement."
