Hagens Berman Reminds North Dakota Consumers about Optical Disc Drive Lawsuit18:30 EDT Thursday, August 11, 2011 SEATTLE (Business Wire) -- Hagens Berman today reminded North Dakota consumers that it has filed a class-action lawsuit against the producers of optical disc drives (ODD) alleging that the companies illegally manipulated the prices of the drives. According to the suit, these anticompetitive practices have caused consumers of a wide range of products including computers, video game consoles and CD, DVD and Blu-ray players to overpay for the devices. Consumers in North Dakota who own one or more of these devices are encouraged to contact the Hagens Berman legal team to discuss their legal options as part of a nationwide legal action against the ODD manufacturers, which include Sony (NYSE: SNE), Hitachi (NYSE: HIT) and Philips (NYSE: PHG).
