    It's definitely not Apple's fault that this woman has the eyes of a bird. Also, I really don't remember that store having a door like that at all? IIRC it's in a mall and just has a doorway, but no door.

    If she wins Costello has to make me an Admin. That's how positive I am she won't.

    Considering legal fees, Apple will probably just settle out of court for far less ($1m is pennies to them anyways), if the case doesn't get dismissed.

    What a waste of a lawsuit. I think someone should just buy her a new set of glasses instead so she doesn't run into anymore doors.

    Did the store get a security camera video of this and/or is there any video of this taking place? I would LOVE to see this happening for a good laugh to cheer me up.

    While she IS old as hell and it actually isn't her fault, it certainly isn't apples fault either.
    She proves she's stupid by suing apple though. What a joke. Apple isn't going to care if some frail old lady is suing them, they're gonna crush the fuck out of her.

    I think she has a case. If people can sue stores for having wet floors, why not this?
    You guys are retarded. Yes, it's not their fault that she didn't see the door. But it is their fault that they don't have signs or anything on their front door other than a stupid apple sticker.

    Yes doors with magical floating apple stickers. I'm sure the door would of had handles unless they were magical floating handles.

    Seriously, it's not that hard to miss glass doors. If the reflection of the background doesn't help, the glare from the windows don't help then the door handles probably would.

    Maybe you should accept the fact that not everybody has 20/20 vision and are able to miss easy things. Like me, I'm 23 years old, when I go to work, I'll miss counting a cow every now and then. How can I miss a 2000 pound cow that has spots all over itself like it's dalmation? Because it's a simple mistake that the human eyes/brain didn't pick up and register it for you.
