Suit filed over Nano scratches
Well it looks like people are really getting up in arms about the whole “too easy to scratch” issue with the iPod nano, as they have gone as far as creating a class action law suit against Apple.
Not only do they want to be reimbursed for their purchase, but they also want an unspecified amount for statutory and punitive damages.
Cnet News with the details:
Claiming that the iPod Nano has a widespread propensity for scratching easily, lawyers this week filed a class action suit against Apple Computer on behalf of those who have purchased the diminutive music player.
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday on behalf of all those who have bought a Nano, alleges that Apple violated state consumer protection statutes, as well as express and implied warranties. The complaint charges that Apple knew that there were design problems with the Nano.
“These Nanos scratch excessively during normal usage, rendering the screen on the Nanos unreadable,” according to the complaint, which was filed in U.S. District Court in San Jose, Calif., by attorneys with Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro in Seattle and Columbus, Ohio-based David P. Meyer & Associates. The suit seeks to have the complaint certified as a class action claim and asks for “damages in the amount of monies paid for Nanos,” as well as unspecified actual, statutory and punitive damages.
