Yet another lawsuit has been filed against Apple. However, this time around it has nothing to do with patent wars. The newest lawsuit takes issue with Apple’s transition from MobileMe to iCloud. The class-action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. In the lawsuit, plaintiff Danyelle Comer alleges that during the transition MobileMe customers did not have access to several of the services that they were paying for. This resulted in “devastating consequences.” According to the suit:
[quote]Unfortunately for many users it doesn’t ‘just work’ and has resulted in a series of headaches due to lack of syncing ability, lack of email functionality and other complications and losses and corruption of data. In fact a number of users have been forced to hire outside technical assistance at significant cost, just to migrate to the iCloud platform or get around it to obtain minimal functionality of emails and other systems.[/quote]
Overall, the suit charges Apple with one count of violation of the Magnus-Moss Warranty Act, one count of unjust enrichment, one count of breach of express warranty, one count of breach of implied warranty of merchantability, and violation of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
