The lawsuit started with California’s attorney general who filed a lawsuit against 10 companies alleging the companies worked together to keep TFT-LCD flat panel prices artificially high, which resulted in customers getting overcharged, according to

Twenty-four states, including Florida, joined in on the lawsuit that was partially settled for more than $500 million. Among the companies that were targeted as part of the suit were Samsung, Hitachi, and Sharp and HannStar. Toshiba and LG have not settled their cases, according to
