$140 Million Cathode Ray Tube Antitrust Litigation for Major Opt-Out Plaintiff

Tech Data Corporation

Representation of Tech Data Corporation, one of the world's largest distributors of technology products, services, and solutions, in the prosecution of claims against the major worldwide manufacturers of cathode-ray tubes (CRTs), the predecessor technology to LCD displays.

Our team has played a significant role in shaping the course of this MDL litigation, including developing evidence regarding certain conspirators that nearly doubled the size of our client's claim.
