A national electronics company has agreed to pay Maine and 38 other states a total of 90-million dollars for alleged price fixing.
Samsung Electronics as well as other computer chip manufacturers are accused of fixing the prices of dynamic random access memory, or DRAM.
DRAM is a type of computer memory chip used in all personal computers, servers, workstations, and many other electronic devices.
Samsung has admitted no wrong doing. State Attorney General Steven Rowe says this price fixing scheme has impacted tens of thousands of Maine consumers.
