Toshiba Defeats Allegations of Collusion.

A jury in U.S. District Court in San Francisco found for Toshiba in a civil case where the plaintiff alleged that firm had fixed prices of liquid crystal display panels. EI Principal and Board Chairman Barry C. Harris analyzed both liability and damage issues and testified in deposition for Toshiba. He considered how Toshiba’s costs, product offerings and status as a net purchaser of LCD panels affected its incentives to participate in the alleged cartel. Dr. Harris was assisted by Matthew B. Wright, Michael G. Baumann and Laura A. Malowane. Toshiba was represented by the law firm of White & Case.
