The first class-action suit over the iPhone 4's antenna is filed in Maryland
Is there any company that sues or gets sued more than Apple (AAPL)?
According to the Wikipedia entry Apple Inc. Litigation, Apple itself has filed more than 350 cases with the U.S. Trademark Office alone between Jan. 2008 and May 2010, including suits over the use of the term "apple" by people who sell the fruit.
So there's a certain divine justice in the fact that the iPhone 4's widely publicized issues with its antenna design triggered a race among America's personal injury law firms to be the first to file a class-action suit.
