Another day, another lawsuit. A 67-year-old Detroit woman has filed a federal lawsuit claiming Apple stole her patented idea for a smart watch, reports Silicon Beat.
“I was the first to put in for a patent for a ‘computer wrist watch,'” Daisy Washington-Gross said in the suit filed Friday in Eastern Michigan U.S. District Court. She claims Apple’s watch infringed on her pending patent for the “Detachable Beeper Disc Digital Gym Shoe Computer Watch” and wants $2 billion in compensation.
Apple’s probably not too worried. According to Silicon Beat, Washington-Gross sued Reebok in 2000, claiming she invented the gym shoe. That lawsuit never went anywhere.
