(MONTGOMERY) Attorney General Luther Strange announces that eligible consumers have an August 1 deadline to file claims in a settlement involving electronic devices purchased between 1998 and 2002 that use Dynamic Random Access Memory, or DRAM.
The national $310 million settlement was filed in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of California and involves claims of price fixing against 12 DRAM manufacturers. The minimum payment for smaller purchases is expected to be $10 but the actual payment amount could be more depending on the total number of claims filed.
DRAM is a high-density, low-cost per bit memory component that stores digital information and provides high-speed retrieval of data. DRAM is sold separately or pre-installed in electronic devices such as computers, graphic cards, video game consoles, MP3 players, printers, PDAs, DVD players and DVRs.
