    Default 83-Year Old Woman Walks Into Glass Door, Sues Apple

    Legal trouble and Apple tend to go hand-in-hand lately, but the latest lawsuit against the company doesn’t involve IP litigation. It involves an 83-year old woman and a glass door.

    According to the lawsuit Evelyn Paswall is suing Apple after walking into the glass doors at the Apple Store Manhasset on Long Island. According to the CBS New York report Paswall is asking for $75,000 in medical expenses plus $1 million in punitive damages for negligence.

    “Paswall claims that she didn’t realize that she was walking into a wall of glass as she approached the store, and says that she broke her nose as a result of the collision.

    Her suit claims that “the defendant was negligent ... in allowing a clear, see-through glass wall and/or door to exist without proper warning.” — CBS New York
    Apple’s floor-to-ceiling glass walls and front doors are a staple of the modern Apple retail store. Last year, Apple even had white stickers installed on the transparent glass of all Apple Stores to help prevent collisions such as this. The plaintiff’s lawyer claims the markings are insufficient and his “client is an octogenarian (80+ years old). She sees well, but she did not see any glass.”

    How many times have people accidentally walked face first into a screen door? Imagine doing that into glass. The potential for damage is there. While I do feel bad for this elderly woman, all I can think about is this video (be careful video may be NSFW).
