Settlements in antitrust litigation regarding TFT-LCD Flat Panels mean you may be a member of the class entitled to file a claim if you purchased a television, monitor or notebook computer incorporating one of the TFT-LCD panels between January 1, 1999 and February 13, 2012.
What is a TFT-LCD Flat Panel? The acronym stands for thin-film transistor liquid display panels, which are used in many television and computer displays. There are 10 groups of companies that are the defendants in this litigation and most have settled or will do so soon. The lawsuits claim that the companies conspired to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize prices of TFT-LCD Flat Panels, which resulted in overcharges to consumer purchasers.
It is expected that a minimum payment of $25 will be distributed to eligible Class Members that submit a valid claim. Kansas and Missouri are two of the states where businesses and consumers may answer a few questions about the devices they bought in order to be eligible for payment. The deadline to file a claim (unless you want to opt out of the class) is December 6, 2012. You may learn more or get started here: lcdclass.com
