Wireless industry was handed a defeat.
Wireless industry was handed a defeat recently when the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that five class-action lawsuits filed in 2001 would be returned to the lower courts for trial. The suits against Nokia and other wireless providers claimed that cell phone makers had done nothing to protect people against potentially harmful effects of cell phone use. Who will win the first lawsuit against the cell phone companies? Mark my words it is going to happen. Rumor has it that Nokia has over a 700 million dollar fund for future pending lawsuits.
