Judge: iPhone 4 owners can’t sue over broken glass

Jeff John Roberts for GigaOm:

The lawsuit was brought by California man Betsalel Williamson who had to replace the screen of his brand new iPhone after he knocked it off the arm of a chair, resulting “in spider cracks across the back glass panel.”

The judge ruled that Williamson failed to demonstrate that Apple breached its warranty or violated laws in California by stating that the glass was “ultradurable.” He said that it’s a fact of life that glass breaks when it’s impacted. The judge threw out the case.
