The lawsuit alleges that Defendants and co-conspirators conspired to raise and fix the prices of Capacitors for more than ten years, resulting in overcharges to indirect purchasers of Capacitors. The complaint describes how the Defendants and co-conspirators allegedly violated the U.S. and state antitrust, unfair competition, and consumer protection laws by agreeing to fix prices and restrict output of Capacitors by, among other things, face-to-face meetings and other communications, customer allocation, and the use of trade associations. Defendants deny Plaintiffs’ allegations. The Court has not decided who is right.

    SOME PEOPLE DO NOT NO HOW TO DOWNLOAD YOU ALL NEED TO PUT THE APPLICATION ONLINE

    ADMIN – Hi Sophia,

    For this particular settlement you should not be concerned about that. It is not ready for claim filing. In the future should you need to work on skills such as downloading a document from the web, you can watch a variety of youtube videos that will show you how to right-click and download a document.

    I bought some capacitors but I doubt there’s any issues with them lol. What kind of check would I get like 29 cents? haha. costs more than that to drive to and from the bank.

    ADMIN – Hi SCK

    To put it simply this has nothing to do with defects. This is an antitrust settlement related to pricing.

      Ohh I see. Sheesh they were cheap enough I thought. Well I’ll have to look up my order details and see what I got but it sure wasn’t much. I got the post card for this in the mail the other day and just laughed.

      ADMIN – Hi SCK,

      You also have stuff that has capacitors in addition to the ones that you purchased directly no?
