Lawsuit Filed Over FaceTime Debacle

Bloomberg is reporting that Houston based lawyer Larry Williams II today filed a lawsuit against Apple claiming that his iPhone allowed an unknown person to listen in on sworn testimony during a client deposition. Which if that’s true is proof positive why this bug is so dangerous. He wants unspecified punitive damages for negligence, product liability, misrepresentation, and warranty breach.

I fully expect this to be the first of many lawsuits to come. I say that because Apple over the last little while has called out other companies for the stances on privacy. But now the shoe is on the other foot. And I bet they don’t like it very much. But you know what they say about glass houses and stones. Perhaps Apple should keep that in mind while they fix this issue, and their reputation.
