Woman fails to sue Apple for being 'greedy vultures'

20 May 2010

vulturesA federal judge, who was probably wondering why they bothered getting out of bed that morning, dismissed a lawsuit against Apple that accused company employees of waiting like "vultures" to spy on some woman every time she used an Apple laptop to go online.

The clearly mental Leslie Carr wanted $60 million for the trauma, which she said kept her from publishing on the web.

She alleged, among other things, that each time she used the laptop to go online, "there would be a mass number of Apple employees waiting greedily like vultures to survey and monitor my life."

But US District Judge Richard Berman said the complaint "fails to state a plausible claim for relief. Where, as here, a complaint is asserting unrealistic and unsupportable claims, a court may dismiss it."

Conspiracy theorists, the comments are all yours.

    It's true, but it runs much deeper than this. In fact, the moon is a giant spacecraft that Apple employees flew into orbit. Why do you think the same side of the moon always faces the Earth? They're watching...
