OAP sues Apple for $1m after walking into store's glass door

Application security programs and practises

An octogenarian is to take Apple to court after a visit to one of the computer company's glass-fronted stores put her nose out of joint - literally.

The 83-year-old New Yorker walked slap bang into one of stores' see-through doors and broke her nose, she claims.

Now, Evelyn Paswall, 83, has asked for $75,000 (£47,000) in medical expenses wrung up for having the pranged proboscis put right.

She also wants the court to force Apple to cough up punitive damages totalling $1m (£630,000), reports CBS.

Apple a day keeps... the doctor busy?

“The defendant was negligent... in allowing a clear, see-through glass wall and/or door to exist without proper warning," insists the lawsuit.

White stickers already placed on the transparent glass panels of Apple's stores are insufficient warnings, apparently. Clearer stickers were said to have been put in place on stores this weekend.

Compensation may ease the old lady's concerns, but whether the panes will be taken away remains to be seen. Sigh. ®
