Florida Joins New York in Suing LCD Makers
Days after New York's attorney general filed suit, accusing LCD manufacturers of price-fixing, the Florida attorney general has filed a similar suit.
According to Reuters, Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum is suing Samsung, Sharp, LG, Hitachi and other companies, alleging that the Asia-based companies have conspired for a decade to fix prices. The alleged price-fixing centers on sales of LCD panels, used for TVs, computer monitors and other devices.
McCollum, a Republican, is running for governor, as is Democratic New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.
