Mississippi price fixing case headed back to federal court

A Mississippi federal court will hear Mississippi’s lawsuit that alleges price fixing by manufacturers of liquid crystal display screens.

A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a ruling that sent the case to a state court.

“Nothing we have said denies the State of Mississippi the right to proceed with this case. It will simply proceed in federal, not state, court,” the panel said.
