Tennessee Lawyer Sues Apple For Getting Addicted To Porn On His MacBook

In what is perhaps the most bizarre lawsuit ever filed against Apple, Tennessee lawyer Chris Sevier is seeking damages for watching “women engaging in sexual acts with the intent to cause vicarious arousal” on his Apple devices. Contained within his 50-page complaint, Sevier’s proposal is that Apple ship its devices in a “safe mode” that customers would have to take steps to disable if they wanted to be naughty.

The Vanderbilt law school grad believes that it’s Apple’s responsibility to shift “the burden off of the buyers who do not want to see porn onto those who do want to see pornographic content to take the additional step.”

Above the Law reports:

Sevier’s complaint makes a simple request: Apple should sell all products with an installed filter blocking all Internet porn. If the buyer, over the age of 18, wishes to unlock the Internet, he or she is free to contact Apple, sign a form acknowledging the ills of pornography, and receive a code to remove the filter. Sevier argues that the burden must be shifted from parents to the manufacturer to sell a locked device. That sounds like a fair enough, even laudable goal. But Sevier also wants these filters installed lest the responsibility be up to *shudder* individuals exercising self-control.

For an attorney, Sevier demonstrates his ineptness at spelling multiple times with sentences like, “As human beings themselves, Apple employees know that a man is born full of harmonies and attacked to by women engaging in sexual acts with the intent to cause vicarious arousal.” Another quote from his complaint:

In using safari, the Plaintiff accidentally misspelled “facebook.com” which lead him to “fuckbook.com” and a host of web sites that caused him to see pornographic images that appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and lead to an unwanted addiction with adverse consequences.

Sevier was placed on disability inactive status by the Tennessee Supreme Court in 2011, meaning that he can’t practice law until the court rules that he is fit to work again. He’s obviously got some issues to deal with, but Apple isn’t going to be able to help.

You can read the whole court document below, which includes gems like, “17. THE RISE OF LATE NIGHT SEX ENHANCEMENT DRUGS.” and the argument that “unregulated internet porn is hurting brick and mortar or ‘mom and pop’ porn shops.”
