MCDANIEL ENCOURAGES CONSUMERS TO FILE LCD SETTLEMENT CLAIMS BY DEC. 6 DEADLINE

LITTLE ROCK - Arkansas consumers and businesses eligible for cash payments as a result of the State's settlement with manufacturers of flat-panel liquid crystal display screens have just three more weeks to submit claims for those payments, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced today.

McDaniel said Dec. 6 is the deadline for consumers to file a claim, which can be completed online at www.lcdclass.com. The cash payments will be distributed to consumers and entities that purchased items containing LCD screens between 1999 and 2006.

McDaniel and other attorneys general reached an agreement with LCD screen manufacturers earlier this year, settling allegations that the manufacturers conspired to fix the prices of the screens used in televisions, monitors and laptop computers.

Consumers could collect $25, $100, $200 or more depending on the number of products purchased. Consumers and businesses in the 24 settling states, including Arkansas, are eligible for payments.

"Arkansas consumers were forced to pay more than what was necessary as a result of the illegal actions of these manufacturers," McDaniel said. "I encourage those consumers who are eligible for restitution to file a claim before the Dec. 6 deadline."

The claims process is simple. Consumers may file claims online at www.lcdclass.com, or call (855) 225-1886 for more information.

The Settling Defendants that manufactured the flat panels for use in LCD flat screen TVs, monitors, and laptops are: AU Optronics Corporation, Hitachi Ltd., Sharp Corporation, Toshiba Corporation, Samsung Electronics Corporation, Epson Imaging Devices Corporation, LG Electronics, Chunghwa Picture Tubes, HannStar Display Corporation, and Chi Mei Optoelectronics.
