Steve Sues Steve

I haven't read this on any Mac news website within the past week, so I'll mention it here. I received a class action notice on Wednesday May 18th concerning power supplies Apple distributed with the PowerBook Lombard and Pismo. Some of you may remember this recall. It is linked on the Jackwhispers Recalls Page

The paperwork is for a certificate to fill out stating that you owned a covered adapter and that it failed.

The thing I hate most about these class actions, is that even the people that had no problem whatsoever will be awarded the $35.00 being sought. Then of course there are a few who never owned an affected power supply at all that will claim money as well.

This lawsuit doesn't really ask that one provide proof they had a power supply other than a certified statement.

The lawsuit reads:

Case Number: 105CV035058

Steven Clark
, Plaintiff v. Apple Computer, Inc., a California corporation, Defendant

TO: ALL PERSONS OR ENTITIES WITHIN THE UNITED STATES WHO OWN OR OWNED APPLE POWER ADAPTERS FOR THE APPLE G3 iBOOK OR POWERBOOK G3 MODELS LISTED IN ATTACHMENT 1.A OR WHO RECEIVED AN APPLE POWER ADAPTER IN APPLE'S RECALL OF "BLACK BRICK" POWER ADAPTERS.


I think if Apple settled this by shipping out replacement power supplies, that should be the end of it. This falls under statute of limitations, if you ask me; as this recall was made 4 1/2 years ago!
