Chris Sevier, an attorney in Nashville, is suing Apple for selling devices that gave him easy access to porn, resulting in an addiction that ruined his marriage.

According to Above the Law, Sevier filed a 50-page complaint filed in federal court last month seeking damages and injunctive relief against Apple for making devices that can display porn.

The Plaintiff is a victim of Apple’s product that was sold to him without any warning of the damage the pornography causes. “But for” the Plaintiff’s use of the Apple product, the quality of the Plaintiff’s life would have been much better and injury would have been avoided. The Plaintiff sustained these unwarranted damages in the course of using Apple’s product as designed. Apple’s product was not adequately equipped with safety features that would have otherwise blocked unwarranted intrusions of pornographic content that systematically poisoned his life.

Sevier claims that his addiction to pornography started after he accidentally mistyped into a browser. Amazingly, his complaint alleges “Unfair Competition” between hot porn actresses and his wife.

UNFAIR COMPETITION AND INTERFERENCE OF THE MARITAL CONTRACT: The Plaintiff became totally out of synch in his romantic relationship with his wife, which was a consequence of his use of his Apple product. The Plaintiff began desiring, younger more beautiful girls featured in porn videos than his wife, who was no longer 21. His failed marriage caused the Plaintiff to experience emotional distress to the point of hospitalization. The Plaintiff could no longer tell the difference between internet pornography and tangible intercourse due to the content he accessed through the Apple products, which failed to provide him with warnings of the dangers of online pornography whatsoever.

In addition to damages, Sevier wants Apple to sell all its products with a filter that blocks pornography. If a buyer is over 18 and wants to unlock the device, he wants them to sign a contract with Apple acknowledging the ills of pornography before receiving a code to remove the filter.

Ok so yea, who really believes that one time was the first time he has ever seen porn? Bet he was watching it long before the iPhone even existed.

This is the result of not pimp slapping an idiot long before he gets to this point. Hey idiot! How about suing your wireless carrier for not filtering the content? Or better yet, the porn site itself for not putting up a disclosure about the effects of pornography. Or, how about suing your parents for not telling you that porn is bad for you and, most importantly, you're a friggen idiot! He's some free advice, Stop having sex with your phone and have sex with your wife. And Apple products are not the only internet enabled devices. But Apple does have a lot of money, don't they?

This is something mobile, not desktop.

I was not being clear enough - Leasure Sue-it Larry. And naturally there's no Dell device in my care. I'll try keeping my comments boring and negative too.

No, why would they be boring? All I said was it sounded like desktop since you pointed out pc.

So, you're telling me he opened his browser and tried to type in instead of just opening his facebook app? BS!

The bigger irony is that Apple has done and continue to do its very BEST to ERADICATE as many of "those objectionable" apps as they can in their AppStore. This, of course, makes Freedom of Speech "enthusiasts" equally as angry at the other side of this particular spectrum.
