    When I worked at CompUSA years ago, a man did the same thing. The entrance was more of a T shape where the external door was split into an interior entrance on the right and exit on the right. After paying he walked right into the glass that had signage on it and what not. He tried to sue the store but the store had video of him using the doors twice the same day properly. The only difference is that there was someone standing where he hit the glass the two prior times. Its just a frivolous lawsuit and IMO, she did it on purpose just to sue.

    People with conditions are supposed to make conscious adjustments so that they can live their lives without harm. A person with diabetes shouldn't be sewing Little Debbie for putting sugar in their treats. They are the moron for not being careful about what they eat. Same thing here.

    As far as this old bag is concerned, she obviously saw the store or she wouldn't have tried to "enter" it. But she claims she didn't see the glass... The whole store is glass. Did she just think that there was a giant Apple logo magically floating in the sky with a bunch of products set up neatly on the sidewalk beneath it? Give me a break. Maybe she'll have a heart attack and poop her pants in the courtroom.

    So lame, just another person wanting easy money! Tons of places have glass doors and a lot of people walk into them, but they don't sue the store because they made a simple mistake of not watching where they were going.

I know it was fairly dumb to run into a door but when you expect it to open when you push it and it doesn't, well, bad things happen... I'd have laughed at myself had my nose not been spread across my face! I think just because of I did this it's not right of you to say I'm what's wrong with the world!
    So would your parents have sued had the door been merely locked?

    Regardless, it was your own stupidity that caused your injury, not a malfunctioning door opener. Any normal person would have stopped immediately when the door they tried to open didn't. And the fact that you are proud that your parents successfully sued the school just makes you look like an even bigger douche bag.

    Well I guess she has to pay for her upcoming funeral somehow right.... Lol

    Next you know she'll be suing jewellers because she put her hand through the glass attempting to try on some ring she saw!!! Lol I wonder how many times she's stabbed herself with a fork & then complained to the cutlery company because the instrument was of a sharp nature....

    Where does it end!!

    have some respect,

    imaging that it's your grandparent thats walked into the glass and suing would you all be as disrespectful

    Edit: it's not as if it will make a end in Appl£'s funds their insurance will probably cover it

    My grandparents wouldn't be attempting to sue a company for their own mistake for starters... They'd have put it down to a mistake upon their behalf rather than attempt to make a frivolous lawsuit

    As for this one... I wonder if they'll sue Apple or if their defence will be that this was an accident?

    Too bad *school* doesn't yeah, that's why I'm studying for a masters in law... Good one

    Also i'm not proud they claimed, not sued I was wrong, claimed, because for the last time I pushed the door when I was running and it did not open fully, meaning I hit it with my face at full blast, never once said it wasn't my fault but they did admit liability instantly, so take it up with the insurance company, not me, douchebags

    As if a degree has any correlation to common sense? The mall is full of idiots with degrees.

    "Ohhh! A MANAGEMENT degree!! Cool. You can start by folding those shirts over there...."

    You'll probably need to learn what a period is before they'll give you a Masters in law.
