In February 2007, Green & Noblin, P.C. filed a class action lawsuit in United States District Court on behalf of persons or entities who purchased Liquid Crystal Displays (“LCD”) indirectly from the world’s leading LCD manufacturers, including: LG Philips, Samsung, Sharp Electronics, Toshiba, Hitachi, Sanyo Epson, NEC, IDT, AU Optronics, Chi Mei Optronics, Chunghwa Picture Tubes, and Hannstar Display. Plaintiffs allege that, in violation of federal and state antitrust and state consumer protection laws, Defendants colluded among themselves and certain co-conspirators to fix the price of LCDs sold in the United States at supracompetitive prices. As a result of this allegedly unlawful conduct, Plaintiffs allege they paid artificially high prices for LCDs. Currently pending in the District Court for the Northern District of California, this lawsuit was coordinated for pre-trial proceedings with a number of related actions and is captioned In re TFT-LCD (Flat Panel) Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 1827.
