Dell sues LCD makers for price fixing

By on

Dell has accused five Asian LCD manufacturers — Hitachi, Sharp, Toshiba, HannStar, and Seiko Epson — for price fixing in a lawsuit filed in the US District Court of San Francisco, according to a report on Reuters.

For Hitachi and Sharp, it’s familiar territory. In December, Nokia filed suit against the two companies for LCD price fixing; while in March last year, the two companies — along with LG and Chunghwa Picture Tubes — pleaded guilty for the same thing, and their executives were jailed and fined.

Dell has not specified on what it will seek in damages.
