Courts dismiss iPhone battery lawsuit
If you remember when the first, first-generation iPhone launched, Jose Trujillo sued Apple over the fact that the handset has a non-removable battery. That lawsuit has now been dismissed.
U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly said in his opinion, "Apple disclosed on the outside of the iPhone package that the [battery has] limited recharge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced by [an] Apple service provider."
"Under the circumstances, no reasonable jury could find that deception occurred."
Trujillo sued Apple in Illinois state court in July 2007, accusing the company of consumer fraud.
