Nokia LCD Judgment Handed Down

29 Mar 2012 | by Caroline Sweeney

Nokia  has successfully defended applications by Hitachi and Samsung to strike out/summarily dismiss Nokia’s claims in the English High Court arising out of their alleged participation in a cartel that raised the prices of liquid crystal displays (LCD) supplied to Nokia. An application by Nokia to amend its Statement of Case, to particularise the activities of the alleged cartel participants (which included Hitachi, Samsung, Samsung SDI, Sharp, Toshiba and AU Optronics), was also successful.
