E-book consumers in 33 states will get credited $116 million from a settlement in a price-fixing case.

Consumers nationwide who bought e-books through Amazon and other online retailers will get credited a total of $166 million stemming from price-fixing settlements with five publishers, according to the New York State attorney general.

Schneiderman said the settlements apply to consumers in 33 states, with $11.5 million going to customers in New York.
