Act now! Consumers can file LCD settlement claims for free on our official claims website
Millions of Washington consumers may be eligible for a share of the $63 million recovered in a price-fixing enforcement action brought by my office against the world’s largest manufactures of liquid crystal display (LCD).
Washington consumers and businesses are urged to file claims by June 17, 2016 to qualify for a share of the recovery.
For years, consumers in Washington and throughout the world were significantly overcharged — up to 20 percent — every time they bought a product with an LCD. Evidence reveals the conspiracy dates back to at least 1998, when LCD manufacturers including Samsung, Toshiba, and Sharp, all agreed it would be more profitable to work together than compete against each other.
Together, they formed the “LCD cartel” and met in secret to share information and develop strategies to control prices by manipulating supply and demand.
The unfair competition created by this industry-wide conspiracy went unchecked for eight years, harming consumers worldwide, including millions in Washington.
Anyone who bought a television, computer monitor, notebook computer, color-screen cell phone, or color-screen iPod that contained a flat panel screen between Jan. 1, 1998 and Dec. 1, 2006, may be eligible to receive a share of the $63 million recovery.
