Looney laptop lawsuit thrown out!

A federal judge has dismissed a plaintiff’s lawsuit against Apple that accused company employees of waiting like “vultures” to spy on her every time she used an Apple laptop to access the Internet.

Leslie Carr sought to recover $60 million for trauma, which she said kept her from publishing on the Web. She alleged, among other things, that each time she used the laptop to go online, “there would be a mass number of Apple employees waiting greedily like vultures to survey and monitor my life.”

But U.S. District Judge Richard Berman said the complaint “fails to state a plausible claim for relief. Where, as here, a complaint is asserting unrealistic and unsupportable claims, a court may dismiss it.”

Carr did not return a call seeking comment.

I presume she’s been hired as a stringer for Gizmodo.
