Did you purchase a television, smart phone, monitor, notebook computer, color-screen cell phone or color-screen iPod with an LCD flat screen during the time period of 1998 through 2006? If so, you may be entitled to a refund.
The Attorney General’s Office has secured a $63 million recovery — one of the largest in state history — from nine liquid crystal display (LCD) panel manufacturers who conspired for years to drive up prices of their products. Because of the ubiquitous presence of LCD products in the everyday lives of consumers, millions of people may benefit from the recovery.
Here is everything you need to know about the recovery and the free claims process now available on our website.
It is important to act soon in order to qualify for a share of the recovery money.
Meanwhile, we have alerted consumers to avoid a third-party agent that has also set up a claims website, but will charge a hefty fee for the service. As explained in this release, with the official free and easy claims process in place, there is no reason for consumers to pay a fee to seek restitution from the LCD settlement.
