iPhone Lawsuit Gets Class-Action Status

The Verizon iPhone can’t come soon enough: A judge granted class-action status to a lawsuit against Apple that says the company has violated anti-trust laws when it comes to the practice of “locking” iPhones into AT&T’s shoddy network and also with its control over which applications it makes available on the iPhone. The lawsuit seeks an injunction against Apple from selling locked iPhones and determining which apps its customers can download.
