Those who purchased an LCD TV between 1999-2006 and from one of 10 electronics manufacturers may be eligible for a money settlement.
he law firms of Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason and the Alioto Law Firm said that as a result of settlements with 10 electronics manufacturers for lawsuits involving an illegal conspiracy to raise prices on LCD panels used in televisions, monitors, and laptop computers, approximately $1.1 billion in class action cash is to be divvied up among the injured parties.
Eligible consumers will be able to collect $25, $100, $200 or more by answering a few questions about the number of LCD flat screen TVs, monitors and laptops they bought between in the time period.
The amounts being paid out will depend on how many TVs you purchased and claims filed. But hurry up, you only have until Dec. 6, 2012 to file a claim (http://www.lcdclass.com
Cash is available to consumers and businesses 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 and Wisconsin.
This settlement also broke a record.
The law firms said the $1.1 billion settlement is the largest antitrust all-cash class action recovery ever obtained for consumers, who bought the electronic products indirectly from retailers and resellers, and not directly from the original manufacturer of the LCD screens.
So who is going to file a claim?
