Case Summary: 

The plaintiffs in this case allege that certain companies conspired to fix, raise, maintain, or stabilize the prices of capacitors, and that customers therefore had to pay more for capacitors than they would have otherwise.

So far, settlements have been reached with three defendants: NEC Tokin Corp. and NEC Tokin America, Inc. (“NEC Tokin”); Okaya Electric Industries Co., Ltd. (“OEI”); and Nitsuko Electronics Corporation (“Nitsuko”).  The case continues against multiple remaining defendants.
