A class action lawsuit has been filed against Apple by a group of women because their AirTags have made it easier for ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands to track women.


For some reason, no woman ever filed lawsuit against a car manufacturer or binocular manufacturer for making it easier to follow an ex-girlfriend or ex-wife. It is not clear if any of these women in the class are suing their ex-boyfriends or ex-husbands for tracking them.

They sued under a consumer protection law! The theory was that the company knowingly targeted disturbed individuals in their advertising. The company was already bankrupt and the suit was against their insurer.

I doubt that this will open up other suits. The manufacturers will just be more careful in how they advertise.
