(San Jose, California) A lawsuit against Apple alleging violation of the iPhone4 warranty was filed by Betsalel Williamson in January 2011.
Class-action status was sought with claims that Apple mislead consumers by asserting the glass case of the iPhone4 is ultradurable.
On the other hand, plaintiff Williamson alleged that the iPhone4 was "quickly scarred and broken by normal, foreseeable use."
Last week, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila dismissed the case.
Williamson filed the complaint after damaging his 2-day-old iPhone 4, which dropped off the arm of a chair.[…]Furthermore, the court ruled that the plaintiff failed to provide specifics supporting alleged misrepresentations by Apple.
The court thought that it was a "stretch" to suggest that the "ordinary purpose" of the device was to drop it as part of normal operation.
In a nutshell, Apple claims its glass is ultradurable while plaintiff Williamson says 'but mine broke so fix it.' In its ruling, the court opined 'yes, glass is known to break' and the plaintiff's case was insufficiently supported.
