Court: iPhone glass damage not lawsuit worthy

A class action lawsuit by iPhone 4 owners regarding broken glass on the Apple devices was thrown out by a federal judge in San Jose.

The lawsuit argued that Apple claims that the glass was “20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic” were misleading, citing a study that the glass on the iPhone 4 breaks at a rate 82 percent higher than previous iPhones.

US District Judge Edward Davila disagreed, stating that “it is a well known fact of life that glass can break under impact,” and ruling that Apple did not breach a warranty or violate consumer protection laws.
