Nashville attorney sues Apple for enabling him to view porn

It’s being covered everywhere (Ars Technica, CNet, Above the Law) but not all the stories have been quick to pick up on this potentially relevant detail: “Sevier’s license to practice law was placed on ‘disability inactive status’ in December of 2011,” the reason given being “mental infirmity or illness.” [Ryan Grenoble, HuffPo]

  • Also, unfair competition with mom & pop porn shops.

    In lieu of cash damages, each class member shall receive a list of top-quality pornography sites, as well as a family-size bottle of hand lotion.

  • So sad, with Sevier such a great name in Tennessee’s history.
