TOKYO (Reuters) – Toshiba Corp said on Friday a Japanese trust bank was suing it for 12 billion yen ($119 million) for losses stemming from the company’s $1.3 billion accounting scandal last year.

Japan Trustee Services Bank had filed the suit with the Tokyo District Court on Aug. 9, the technology and industrial conglomerate said in a statement.

Toshiba said it would set aside a “reasonable” amount of cash to cover any damages and would revise its earnings guidance as needed.
