Case No. CV-10-4346
Circuit Court of the State of Oregon

These lawsuits are accusing the manufacturers of conspiring to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize the prices of TFT-LCD flat panels or CRT this resulted in overcharges to consumers who indirectly purchased TVs, monitors, or notebook computers containing LCD flat panels or CRTs.
