On Friday of last week, Dell filed a lawsuit at a U.S. district court in San Francisco against a group of five LCD makers in Asia. A spokesman at Dell's Japan unit yesterday told Reuters that the company had filed suit against Sharp, Hitachi, Toshiba, Seiko Epson and HannStar for allegedly fixing the price of LCD panels
Details about the suit are pretty scant. Reuters reports that both Sharp and Hitachi said that they were aware of the suit but declined to comment on the matter. Dell has not said what it is seeking in terms of damages.
