Let’s Sue Apple!

I just read about the filing of a lawsuit against Apple over their iPhone 4 antenna/reception problems. It turns out, this is the fourth lawsuit filed over the barely week old iPhone. I imagine Apple’s response would be a copy of their return policy:

If you are not satisfied with your iPhone purchase, please visit online Order Status or call 1-800-676-2775 to request a return. The iPhone must be returned to our warehouse within 30 calendar days from shipment to avoid an $175 early termination fee. The iPhone must be returned in the original packaging, including any accessories, manuals, and documentation.

They also said in the case of the iPhone 4 they would give a full refund (they normally have a 10% restocking fee).

Plaintiff seeks actual and/or compensatory damages; restitution; equitable relief, including the replacement and/or recall of the defective iPhone4; costs and expenses of litigation, including attorneys’ fees; and all additional and further relief that may be available. Plaintiff reserves the right to amend his Complaint to add additional relief as permitted under the CLRA or other applicable law.

How much damage can there be in a week? Especially when you can return your phone (your contract is also canceled). I’m far from an Apple apologist, but this just seems like people wanting their 15 minutes.
