He never should have bitten into that apple.

Chris Sevier lawsuit: Lawyer and amateur model sues Apple for failing to protect him from porn | Mail Online

This story was also reported in the Daily Mail. Some of the comments in the DM and Huffington Post are pretty funny.

Don't forget to include the car company that made your car, and the oil company that produce the gasoline, thus enabling you to get to the golf course.

I am suing GE for my alcohol addiction. The fridge they manufactured stored and chilled the beer I drink too many of. The company enabled an unfair competition between well chilled beer and tap water.

I didn't need Apple to become addicted to porn.

Oh wait, it was Apple that got me addicted. Damn you Steve Job and Woz! I had a PowerPC Apple and I was using Apple's internet service, EWORLD, back in 1993 and they are charging me $3.99 a hour to download GIF. It took 30 minutes to download one pic, but it was well worth it. My addiction was so bad, I spent $2k one month for ISP fee.

Is this a class action? I think he should make it a class action so we can all get a piece of the settlement.

I got the feeling as a former lawyer he filed the suit himself.

If he was seeking publicist, pretty sure he achieved is goal. Money well LOL

I loved how Huff Post served up 4 porn star stories next to this story... at least for me..

A suspended, i.e., temporarily disbarred with too much time and nothing else to do besides that and watch porn.

Not really Apple's fault, the real cause is the internet so
all the porn addicts need to go after Al Gore.

I could see the real potential of a class action suit going clear back to the days of the Sears catalogue.

Clearly the lawyer hasn't seen the broadway show: "Avenue Q".... Otherwise he'd know it's not Apple that's at fault - it's the internet in general. Hillarious song about it.

Must be the same guy that sued GM some time ago for polluting all 50 states. A judge dismissed that suit...........

Question for the lawyers on the forum. What would happen if the Apple legal dept simply ignored this absurd lawsuit? Presumably most judges would throw it out pretty quickly.

Normally I don't favor the British system where the loser pays the winners legal bills, but in this case....

I think I'll sue the Aztecs for inventing chocolate, and maybe the medeval Arabs, for good measure, for having invented ice cream. It's all their fault I can't stop eating these foods.

We cant be responsible for our addictions. It must be someone else who did this to us!
