Lawsuit Alleges Palms Fry PCs
A lawsuit filed in California says that Palm handhelds can "damage or destroy the motherboards on certain PC brands" when placed in the HotSync cradle, according to an article put out by the Associated Press. The suit doesn't list which models cause this but one of the lawyers involved said, "our investigation has uncovered that it involves more than one (Palm) model and we know it's more than an isolated problem." The law firm also alleges that it affects PCs made by Dell.
A Palm spokesperson said, "We haven't seen the lawsuit yet," and had no other comment.
The suit was filed in San Francisco County Superior Court on behalf of two Californai residents. They are trying to make this a class action.
This is at least the second law suit filed against Palm recently. The first one alleges Palm conspired with the underwriters of its IPO to artificially drive up the price of its stock.
