Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) - Mitsubishi

Did your business purchase a cathode ray tube (CRT) product from a retail store or someone other than the manufacturer of the CRT product between March 1995 through November 2007? If so, your business may be eligible for a new $33 million settlement with a June 13, 2023 deadline.

Case Background

A new $33 million settlement has been created for a class of CRT indirect purchasers. Both businesses and individual consumers who bought CRTs associated with certain-sized computers and televisions can benefit from this settlement resulting from the years-long Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Antitrust Litigation that accused CRT manufacturers of manipulating the prices of CRTs from 1995 through 2007.

Mitsubishi Electric Corp. is the latest party to settle, bringing the total recovery for indirect purchasers to over $580 million. One defendant remains in this litigation, creating the possibility of a future settlement.
