If you bought a TV, monitor, or notebook computer that contained an LCD flat panel screen – lawsuits and settlements totaling almost $1.1 billion may affect you.
file a claim provides information about litigation and Settlements benefiting individuals or businesses that indirectly purchased an LCD Flat Panel which has been incorporated into a television, monitor or notebook computer. Consumers in twenty four states and the District of Columbia may qualify to receive a cash payment for purchases between January 1, 1999 and December 31, 2006.
“INDIRECTLY” means that you purchased an LCD panel in a television, monitor or notebook computer from someone other than the manufacturer of that panel. For example, if you purchased a Samsung LCD television from Best Buy during the Class Period, you made an INDIRECT purchase of the LCD Flat Panel from Defendant Samsung. If you purchased televisions, monitors and notebook computers with LCD Flat Panels INDIRECTLY from the Defendants, this website will provide you with information as it is available. On July 11, 2012, the Court granted final approval to seven Settlements totaling over $538 Million. Additional Settlements have now been reached with the last three Defendants totaling $543.5 Million and preliminary approval for these three Settlements was granted on July 31, 2012. The combined amount of all ten Settlements is almost $1.1 Billion.
The lawsuits claim that the Defendants conspired to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize prices of TFT-LCD Flat Panels resulting in overcharges to consumers who bought TVs, monitors or notebook computers containing the Flat Panels. The Defendants deny Plaintiffs’ allegations or that indirect purchasers suffered any overcharge.
