Judge dismisses class action lawsuit involved cracked Apple Watch displays

Apple won’t face a proposed class action accusing it of selling millions of watches with defective screens that can crack or shatter, after a California federal judge found the plaintiff failed to provide an explanation for the alleged cracking, reports Law360.

Earlier this month, a six-count, class action lawsuit was filed against Apple for an alleged Apple Watch defect that cause the display to malfunction. Kenneth Sciacca of Colorado is suing the tech giant for $5 million, claiming the company refuses to acknowledge a common complaint about every edition of the Apple Watch.

According to the plaintiff “the Watches all contain the same defect and/or flaw, which causes the screens on the Watches to crack, shatter, or detach from the body of the Watch (the “Defect”), through no fault of the wearer, oftentimes only days or weeks after purchase.”
