Below is the first part of an article by Jack Purcher from It reads…

A new Class Action lawsuit has been initiated by Rendell Roman against Apple on behalf of individuals who purchased devices from Apple that use the Lightning connector that is prone to fraying, breakage, failure and beyond. The complaint alleges that Apple possessed knowledge of the defect prior to distributing the Lightning connector.

The Official Preliminary Statement

This is a class action lawsuit brought by Plaintiff, and on behalf of a nationwide class of individuals who purchased an Apple product that came equipped with the Apple Lightning connector (“Lightning”) from Defendant, Apple, Inc. (“Apple” or “Defendant”). To date, the Apple products that can be charged and connected to the computer exclusively by the Lightning include: the iPhone 5, iPad (fourth generation), iPad Mini, iPod Nano (seventh generation), and iPod Touch (fifth generation) (collectively “Apple devices”).

On September 12, 2012, Apple introduced Lightning as the new cable used to charge and synchronize content for its new hardware devices, including the highly anticipated iPhone 5, which sold in excess of five million units over the weekend following its launch.
