The State of Washington Reaches $63 Million Agreement with Samsung, AU Optronics, Sharp, Epson, Toshiba, LG and Hatachi

The State of Washington has reached a $63 million agreement with nine LCD manufacturers accused of fixing prices for products ranging from flat-screen televisions to computers and cellphones. If a King County Superior Court judge approves the agreement during a May 22 hearing. The state filed a lawsuit in 2010 against a list of companies that make products that use a liquid crystal display, or LCD. The lawsuit claimed these companies conspired to fix prices between 1998 until 2006. The scheme may have increased the prices that customers paid by as much as 20%. The LCD panel can account for 80% of the cost of a device. Larry Gangnes, a Seattle lawyer representing Samsung, declined to comment on the case. Messages left for lawyers with the other companies were not immediately returned. Under the agreement, Samsung would pay the state $12.94 million and AU Optronics $12.5 million. Sharp, Epson and Toshiba also agreed to pay between $950,000 and almost $7 million. Two other companies, LG and Hatachi, had previously reached an agreement in the case for $13 million and $5.2 million, respectively. Eight of the nine companies involved in the case had previously pleaded guilty or were convicted of federal criminal price-fixing charges filed by the U.S. Justice Department. Most of the money will be returned to consumers who purchased the products.
