Oregon LCD & CRT Screen Antitrust Lawsuits
Attorney General Ellen F. Rosenblum

Overview

The claim filing deadline was April 2, 2018.

If you bought a TV, Monitor, or Notebook Computer with an LCD Flat Panel Screen During the Years 2002 through 2006, or a TV or Computer Monitor with a CRT Screen During the Years 1995 through 2007, You May Be Entitled to Money Back.

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum has resolved two lawsuits she brought on behalf of Oregon natural persons against certain manufacturers of liquid crystal display (“LCD”) flat panels and cathode ray tubes (“CRTs”). The lawsuits allege the manufacturers illegally agreed upon the pricing of LCD-flat panels and CRTs.

Oregon has settled with all defendants for a total of $36,900,000 (“Settlement Fund”), and you may be entitled to a portion of the Settlement Fund.

LCD Lawsuit

The LCD Lawsuit alleges that LCD manufacturers illegally agreed upon the pricing of LCD-flat panels.

The State of Oregon and all Oregonians, as well as political subdivisions that purchased LCD panels incorporated in flat panel TVs, monitors or notebook computers during the years 2002 through 2006 for their use and not for resale, may be entitled to a portion of the Settlement Fund.

“Political subdivisions” includes all Oregon counties, cities, municipalities, public universities, school districts, special districts, and all other local government entities. “Oregon natural persons” means a human, not a business. An indirect purchaser is someone that purchased a product containing an LCD flat panel from someone other than the company that manufactured the flat panel component, such as from an electronics retailer or a device manufacturer other than one of the Defendants.

CRT Lawsuit

The CRT Lawsuit alleges that CRT manufacturers illegally agreed upon the pricing of CRTs.

The State of Oregon and all Oregonians who indirectly purchased during the years 1995 through 2007, for their own use and not for resale, TVs or computer monitors that include a CRT, may be entitled to a portion of the Settlement Fund.
