SAN FRANCISCO — A handful of global electronics manufacturers have agreed to pay $528 million to settle claims that they fixed the prices of cathode ray tubes used in computer and TV monitors, bringing the total recovery for consumers to $563 million.
A group of settlements proposed Friday would resolve antitrust claims against Panasonic Corp., Hitachi Ltd., Toshiba Corp., Samsung SDI and Philips on behalf of customers who purchased products containing the components. The court previously approved a $10 million settlement with Chunghwa Picture Tubes Ltd. in 2012, and a $25 million settlement with LG Electronics Inc. last year.
