Americans suing glass that breaks/cracks

It is well known that Don's fellow Americans enjoy suing each other. Perhaps it was a quick way to make a fortune.

In December 2007, an American girl sued Mr Andrew Thistleton (from Sydney, was working in Colorado then) for throwing a snowball. (news report)

It appears that Don's fellow Americans decided to get rich by suing Apple (the company Don hates). They sue Apple over the durability of the iPhone 4's glass.

As a matter of fact, Apple never stated that iPhone 4's glass would not break or crack at all. Those Americans somehow did not know glass would crack/break is not handle with care. Thanks to the fair judge with common sense,

"It is a well-known fact of life that glass can break under impact, even glass that has been reinforced," Judge Davila wrote in the order. "The shattered window of a storefront, the cracked windshield of a car, and the chipped smartphone screen are routine encounters of modern existence."

Oh, as for Mr Thistleton's snowball throwing lawsuit. Mr Thistleton refused a plea bargain (well done!). Well, at end, the case was dismissed. (news source: SMH)

Don lives in picturesque Quincy near beautiful Boston
