If you bought a cathode ray tube (CRT) or a TV or computer monitor that contained a CRT you could get money from settlements totaling $576.75 million.
Cathode Ray Tubes (“CRTs”) are a display technology that was widely used in televisions and computer monitors. Before LCD, Plasma and LED display technologies became popular, CRTs were the main technology used in displays so most people should have purchased some version of it.
To be eligible to make a claim, you must have purchased the CRT televisions, monitors or other CRT Products “indirectly”, meaning that you purchased the products from someone other than the defendant manufacturers or alleged co-conspirators. Purchases made directly from a defendant or alleged co-conspirator are not included. Persons or businesses who purchased directly from a defendant manufacturer or alleged co-conspirator should visit the direct purchasers for additional information.
Class Members of the CRT class action settlement include individuals and businesses who purchased a CRT or product containing a CRT, such as a TV or computer monitor, in the following states for their own use and not resale:
- Arizona, California, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin or the District of Columbia between March 1, 1995 and November 25, 2007
- Hawaii between June 25, 2002 and November 25, 2007
- Nebraska between July 20, 2002 and November 25, 2007
- Nevada between February 4, 1999 and November 25, 2007
As I mentioned above, most people in the aforementioned states should qualify for this rebate, unless you didn’t have a TV.
