Another day, another lawsuit. Apple and Samsung are targeted in a class action lawsuit after a Chicago Tribune investigation claimed that certain iPhone models and Galaxy S models produce radio-frequency emissions that exceed safety limits regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
“All iPhone models, including iPhone 7, are fully certified by the FCC [Federal Communications Commission] and in every other country where iPhone is sold,” Apple told the Chicago Tribune. “After careful review and subsequent validation of all iPhone models tested in the [Tribune] report, we confirmed we are in compliance and meet all applicable … exposure guidelines and limits.”
Plaintiffs in the new lawsuit — filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division — are suing for “negligence, breach of warranty, consumer fraud, and unjust enrichment.” They’re seeking “actual damages, the costs of medical monitoring, restitution, and injunctive relief.”
