First Action-Class Lawsuit Filed Against Apple and AT&T Over iPhone 4 Antenna Issue

LawsuitIt was only a matter of time until this happened. The lawsuit that obviously focuses on the iPhone 4 antenna issue, makes several claims:

  • General Negligence (APPLE and AT&T)
  • Defect in Design, Manufacture, and Assembly (APPLE)
  • Breach of Express Warranty (APPLE)
  • Breach of Implied Warranty for Merchantability (APPLE and AT&T)
  • Breach of Implied Warranty of Fitness for a Particular Purpose (APPLE and AT&T)
  • Deceptive Trade Practices (APPLE and AT&T)
  • Intentional Misrepresentation (APPLE and AT&T)
  • Negligent Misrepresentation (APPLE and AT&T)
  • Fraud by Concealment (APPLE and AT&T)

I don’t like lawsuits as they usually don’t solve the issue, they just compensate it. In this case however, Apple’s audacity and lack of action is such that I can understand why a few people would want to sue the company.

Thank god MacGyver has a fix for this antenna issue.
