iPod lawsuit uncertain
The man who was named as the lead plaintiff in the iPod nano "Scratch" class action lawsuit filed against Apple on October 19th of 2005, has written an open letter to the Mac community in an attempt to clarify his lack of involvement with the lawsuit. "The truth is that I never sought out nor did I ever hire David P. Meyer & Associates or Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro to represent me in any case, much less the iPod Nano Class Action suit," said Jason Tomczak. Tomczak said he received a phone call from the senior partner of David P. Meyer & Associates two days after the lawsuit was filed urgently requesting his signature on an attorney-client agreement. Tomczak says David P. Meyer & Associates and Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro violated his request for privacy, mistakenly file the iPod Nano Class Action suit with his name, failed to correct their press releases, and never offered an official apology.
