    Irresponsible parents?

    Funny how some folks hurry to the courthouse without a thought. A contingency fee case, no doubt.

    Apple dealt class action lawsuit over in-app purchases, child ‘exploitation’

    Well, the father is obviously doing something wrong. He doesn't have to give his children access to his Apple ID.

    He could just create them their own Apple ID, and only add iTunes gift cards, or use the goddam in-app purchase restriction, there is a reaso that rstriction exists, why not use it?

    Just another example of a parent refusing to take responsibility for raising their children and now wanting the government to step in and do it for them.

    A prime example of why we have more lawyers per capita than any other nation. Our screwups are now ways to make money for lawyers. A friend of mine stole his dad's car one night and ran it up a tree. His dad took the insurance money and informed son that he had planned on giving him the car on his 16th birthday. He blew it. No lawyers involved, just discipline.

    I'm not sure it's even a case at all. After all, you can disable in-app purchases from the settings.

    The dude who is suing Apple is Garen Meguerian of PA. How convenient that he is an attorney. His lawsuit alleges, according to news reports, "endangerment of a child." Kind of an odd charge in a civil action since child endangerment usually is a criminal offense.

    Wasn't this about a $200 charge his unsupervised kids made? Heck, in my state, that's a small claims action.

    Am guessing that the legal business is not very good in Pennsylvania and the best he can do is file a nuisance lawsuit and hope Apple will settle.

    Ah, the parasites among us.....
