The U.S. Department of Justice's broad investigation into price-fixing by the LCD screen industry has netted more than $860 million in fines and resulted in criminal charges against nearly a dozen executives.

Rather than negotiate the release of the documents through foreign court systems, prosecutors subpoenaed law firms representing the companies.
