iPad Overheating Suit Against Apple Gets Dismissed

Last year we heard about a class-action lawsuit being filed against Apple for false advertising, that alleged the iPad did not work as Apple said it did. Specifically, Apple said it was “just like reading a book,” and the plaintiffs felt otherwise.

Of course, it’s obvious to you and me, reader, that this lawsuit is baseless. But in a court of law, sometimes things go a little pear-shaped and companies pay out millions for frivolous garbage like this. Not this time!

The Court concludes that these allegations are insufficient. At the least, Plaintiffs must identify the particular commercial or advertisement upon which they relied and must describe with the requisite specificity the content of that particular commercial or advertisement.

They actually did name the advertisement (it’s on Apple.com), so I’m not sure this was technically correct, but let us all agree that justice was served.
