Another day, another TWO lawsuits. A Seattle-based law firm called PCVA and Immersion, a haptic feedback tech company, are suing Apple.
The law firm is launching a class action suit against Apple over the “Error 53” codes brouhaha. It involves Apple's hardware repair practices, specifically targeting the "Error 53" code issue that renders an iPhone unusable following an unauthorized Touch ID fingerprint sensor install.
In the other legal action, Immersion has filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission ("ITC") against Apple Inc., AT&T Inc., and AT&T Mobility LLC. Immersion has also filed a patent infringement complaint against Apple, AT&T and AT&T Mobility in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. The complaints allege that the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus, Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition infringe certain Immersion patents covering haptic feedback systems and methods in electronic devices.
