WV AG Says Claims Being Accepted In LCD Case

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Attorney General Darrell McGraw says West Virginia consumers can now file refund claims in a price-fixing settlement against companies that made liquid crystal display screens used in televisions and computer monitors.

Consumers have until Dec. 6 to file claims for LCD screens bought between 1999 and 2006. Claims can be made online at www.lcdclass.com or forms can be requested by calling (855) 225-1886

McGraw said Monday says consumers will likely receive at least $25, although the actual payment will be calculated based on the number of claims and type of products purchased.

The $1.1 billion settlement involved 10 manufacturers of LCD panels. Partial refunds are being offered to consumers in 24 states.
