July 16 (Reuters) - Bank of America Corp, the second largest U.S. bank by assets, reported a 43 percent drop in second-quarter profit as mortgage revenue fell and litigation costs increased.

Earnings attributable to shareholders fell to $2.04 billion, or 19 cents per share, in the three months ended June 30 from $3.58 billion, or 32 cent per share, a year earlier. (Reporting by Tanya Agrawal and Peter Rudegeair; Editing by Ted Kerr)
