This class action lawsuit alleges agreements among certain manufacturers to raise or stabilize the prices for aluminum, tantalum, and film capacitors.  To date, the Joseph Saveri Law Firm has reached settlements with various defendants totaling nearly $100 million.

The firm negotiated a first round of settlements totaling $32,600,000 in cash and secure agreements with the following defendants:  Fujitsu Limited; NEC TOKIN Corporation and NEC TOKIN America, Inc.; Nitsuko Electronics Corporation; Okaya Electric Industries Co., Ltd. and Okaya Electric America, Inc.; and ROHM Co., Ltd. and ROHM Semiconductor USA, Inc.  Initial payments for all approved first-round claims have been distributed.  These payments represent approximately half of the total first-round distribution amounts.  The remaining payments will be distributed on or about June 2019 and January 2020.

Additionally, a second all-cash settlement fund of $66,900,000 has been established for settlements with defendants Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd., Hitachi AIC, Inc., and Hitachi Chemical Co. America, Ltd. ($63,000,000); and Soshin Electric Co., Ltd., and Soshin Electronics of America Inc. ($3,900,000).  These settlements have been approved by the Court.  We expect to distribute these funds before the end of 2018, depending on court approval for the distributions.
