Case Summary:

The latest defendants to settle in this large antitrust case are Shinyei Technology Co., Ltd., Shinyei Capacitor Co., Ltd., and Taitsu Corporation. This large antitrust case is meant to benefit indirect purchasers of electrolytic and film capacitors. The complaint alleged that the various makers conspired to raise or fix prices for capacitors, violating antitrust and other laws, and causing indirect purchasers to pay more than they otherwise would have for capacitors. This new settlement adds $300,000 to the $81 million in settlements in this case so far.

Many other defendants have previously agreed to settlements. The case is still proceeding against Nissei Electric Co., Ltd. and Toshin Kogyo Co., Ltd.
