Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit March 1, 2012 at 05:25 PM
If you bought a laptop, computer monitor or television with a flat-panel LCD display between 1999 and 2006, you could be eligible for damages under a collective $538 million class action settlement with Samsung, Sharp, Hitachi, Epson, Chimei, Chungwa and HannStar.

This class action lawsuit settlement only covers consumers who purchased INDIRECTLY from these companies. “Indirectly” means that you purchased a TFT-LCD panel in a television, monitor or notebook computer from someone other than the manufacturer of that panel. If you purchased DIRECTLY from the manufactures, a separate class action lawsuit settlement affects you. Go to www.TFTLCDclassaction.com for information on the LCD Direct Purchasers Class Action Settlement, which we explain in detail here.

The “indirect” LCD panel class action settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit alleging the LCD manufacturers conspired to fix, raise, maintain, or stabilize prices of TFT-LCD Flat Panels resulting in overcharges to consumers who bought products containing the panels.

Not all of the companies have settled, but those that have settled have set up a class action settlement fund of more than $538 million to pay individual and business consumers in the District of Columbia and the following 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
* Wisconsin

The indirect LCD panel class action lawsuit settlement also includes a “nationwide” class of any person or business that indirectly purchased in the United States a TFT-LCD panel product from one or more of the Defendants between 1999 and the present.

The amount of money you will receive from the LCD panel class action settlement, and when you will receive it, is unknown at this time because the lawyers for the Plaintiffs are pursuing lawsuits against the non-settling companies. The on-going litigation may result in additional money for Class Members.

In order to receive a payment, you will need to file a valid claim form when the claims period begins. A notice about the claims process will be made available after the conclusion of the lawsuits or as ordered by the Court.

If you want to receive a notice about the claims process or future class action settlements, you should register at www.LCDclass.com or by calling (855) 225-1886.

More information on your rights in the Indirect LCD Panel Class Action Lawsuit Settlement can be found at www.LCDclass.com.

If you made an INDIRECT purchase of a TFT-LCD Product from the Defendants listed below, there has been no partial or full settlement of the matter as it may pertain to you. “Indirect” means that you did not buy the TFT-LCD directly from any Defendant, but you instead bought it from an intermediary or retailer who is not one of the named Defendants, listed below, or a subsidiary or affiliate thereof, or a co-conspirator. This website will be updated with any information concerning TFT-LCD indirect purchasers as soon as it becomes available.

Turn over massive amounts of personal and financial information, personal records, and in about 2 years you should receive a voucher for $3 off a new Samsung Television priced over $2000 dollars. Certain limitations apply. Not available in all states.

Lawyers get even richer, big companies get a slap on the wrist, and the consumers who suffered will get a check for $2.16 if they spend 3 hrs filing paperwork.

Yay Special Interest Class Action LItigation Legislation!
