Andy's Got Your Back on the LCD TV/Monitor/Laptop Settlement

(WMC TV) - Before I link you to the claim site for this LCD flat-screen class action settlement, here's a portion of the official release from the suit's public relations partner:

"Ten LCD flat screen manufacturers have agreed to pay an unprecedented settlement of $1.1 billion in the largest antitrust consumer class action lawsuit in history. The manufacturers are, AU OPTRONICS, CHIMEI, CHUNGHWA, EPSON, HANNSTAR, HITACHI, LG, SHARP, SAMSUNG, and TOSHIBA.

Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas consumers and businesses that indirectly purchased these manufacturers flat screen products (monitors, TV's, and laptops) anytime between January 1999 and December 2006 are eligible to receive a payment from the settlement fund. However, they must respond quickly because the deadline to file a claim is December 6, 2012."

"The anticipated cash payout ensures a minimum of $25 to each of the consumers who would have otherwise been unable to recover any of the money lost when they overpaid for LCD panels," said Mark Schirmer, an attorney who represents the Tennessee class in the case.
