The other day we told you that a law firm was looking into filing a lawsuit against Apple [AAPL] over the iPhone 4 reception issues and antenna problems. Now it seems that another law firm has actually filed a class action lawsuit against Apple.
The lawsuit has been filed against both Apple and AT&T and it alleges, that there is a defect in the design of the iPhone 4, and also accuses Apple of deceptive trade practices.
You can see details of the claims against Apple and AT&T below.
General Negligence (APPLE and AT&T)
Defect in Design, Manufacture, and Assembly (APPLE)
Breach of Express Warranty (APPLE)
Breach of Implied Warranty for Merchantability (APPLE and AT&T)
Breach of Implied Warranty of Fitness for a Particular Purpose (APPLE and AT&T)
Deceptive Trade Practices (APPLE and AT&T)
Intentional Misrepresentation (APPLE and AT&T)
Negligent Misrepresentation (APPLE and AT&T)
Fraud by Concealment (APPLE and AT&T)
Those are some pretty hefty claims, and it will be interesting to see what the outcome is, although with thousands of iPhone 4 users experiencing the problem, unless Apple comes up with a fix for the problem via a software update or exchanges the affected handsets, they could end up seeing a lot more of these lawsuit.
