Class Action Lawsuit Against Apple Filed By Disgruntled Iphone Owner
While customers were happy to wait in long lines that wrapped around building just so that they could be the very first to get their hands on the iPhone 4, a California man is enraged that his smart phone didn’t hold up. The man at the center of this legal battle alleges that the glass screen on his iPhone 4 shattered after being dropped from a ‘reasonable’ height. Most cell phone owners are aware of the fact that they are purchasing their electronics ‘at their own risk.’ A warranty is helpful if you don’t purposefully or negligently cause the damage, but in this case it is pretty clear that the iPhone 4 in question didn’t break from reasonable use.
Had the man who has filed this lawsuit invested in iPhone accessories that would have protected the glass there is a good chance that he would still be a proud iPhone 4 owner to this day. While Apple usually is the party that files the lawsuit, their team of bulldog lawyers will likely get the suit thrown out of court. There is a chance that Apple is manufacturing their iPhone 4 smart phones with an inferior grade of glass, but they offer a comprehensive warranty to all of their customers. The fact of the matter is that this unnamed California resident voided his warranty when he chose to get his iPhone 4 repaired at an unlicensed dealer. Most people choose to learn from their mistakes by being more cautious with their smart phones, but in this case apparently filing a class action lawsuit was the better choice. Apple has not yet released an official statement, but one is expected to made within the next few days. The unforunate iPhone owner is actively looking for others who have had similar experiences with the glass on their screen breaking and shattering after normal use.
