The state attorney general of Washington brought suit alleging price-fixing among manufacturers of CRT monitors based on Washington state consumer protection law. The defendants argued that the statute of limitations (4 years) had passed under Washington law. The Supreme Court of Washington held that action by the government is exempt from statute of limitations.
This appears to be based on the same set of conducts underlying In re CRT Antitrust Litigation that this blog has been monitoring. Only four states--Washington, Connecticut, Oregon and Virginia--lack the time limit on actions brought by the government under consumer protection law.
