According to InformationWeek, a couple of Maryland residents have filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging that the iPhone 4's defective antenna has caused them "emotional distress," as well as annoyance and aggravation. Court papers state that the pair:
have experienced numerous dropped calls and, as a result, Plaintiffs are left with a device that cannot be used for the normal purpose and in the normal manner in which such devices are intended to be used.
Apple Insider reports that Apple is being accused of a number of things, including violation of the Federal Communications Act, three counts of products liability related to negligence, defect in design and breach of implied warranty, intentional and negligent misrepresentation, fraud by concealment and more.
The suit also targets AT&T. It claims that the company helped to design, manufacture and market the new iPhone 4.
Plaintiffs Kevin McCaffrey and Linda Wrinn are seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. They also want the court to prevent Apple from selling any more iPhone 4 units until the problem is fixed.
