The federal government is suing Hitachi Displays Ltd., accusing the Japanese electronics giant of fixing prices of thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD display panels that were sold to Dell from 2001 to 2004.

Documentation shows that the Department of Justice is accusing Hitachi of trust-like activities and violating the Sherman Act.

The lawsuit alleges that Hitachi held meetings to discuss the prices of the TFT-LCD panels being sold to Dell.

No other information was released, and Dell has not yet responded to requests for comment.
