Feds demand LCD maker pay $1 billion
Question of the Day
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Federal prosecutors are seeking harsh sentences against a Taiwan company and two of its former executives, saying they participated in the most significant price-fixing "cartel" ever prosecuted in the United States.
The U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday demanded AU Optronics Corp. pay $1 billion and the two former executives each serve 10-year prison sentences for illegally fixing computer screen prices.
The company's lawyers are arguing for a fine of no more than $285 million and significantly lighter, but undefined, prison terms for the executives.
A federal jury in March found the company, along with Hsuan Bin Chen and Hui Hsiung, guilty of price fixing.
Six other Asian LCD screen makers have paid a combined $860 million in fines after pleading guilty.
