As reported in TWICE, the law firms of Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason and the Alioto Law Firm said the settlement stems from lawsuits related to price fixing on LCD panels used in TVs, monitors, and laptop computers. The settlement involves 10 electronics manufacturers, including Samsung, LG, Hitachi, Sharp, and Toshiba.

Eligible consumers will be able to collect $25, $100, $200, or more depending on the number of LCD products purchased during the time period and the number of claims filed.
Settlement proceeds are available to consumers and businesses in the District of Columbia and 24 states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
The law firms said the settlement is the largest antitrust all-cash class action recovery ever for consumers who bought consumer electronics products indirectly from retailers and resellers, according to the report in TWICE.
