Nokia sues Samsung, LG over LCD prices

It charges the LCD makers with collusion, citing an investigation of display panel price-fixing by the U.S. Justice Department.

Nokia has sued Samsung, LG Displays, and other makers of liquid crystal displays, accusing them of conspiring to inflate prices for displays, a suit that comes a month after AT&T made the same allegations against LCD manufacturers, according to a Bloomberg report.

The lawsuit, filed Nov. 25 in San Francisco, is based on federal and state antitrust claims. Nokia is seeking unspecified damages, as well as an injunction that would bring a halt to the alleged collusion.

Both the AT&T and Nokia suits cite an investigation of display panel price-fixing by the U.S. Justice Department.
