Record Price Fixing Fine Against Samsung

The DoJ announced yesterday that it had reached a potential settlement, including a fine of $ 300M,  with Samsung and its US subsidiaries in a price fixing investigation which has already resulted in guilty pleas from Hynix and Infineon.  The settlement is now before District Judge Phyllis Hamilton for approval.  Fines of $ 346 M have already been approved against other conspirators.  If approved, this fine will be the second highest  in a criminal antitrust case after the $ 500 M fine against Hoffmann-LaRouche sicx years ago.
