A federal judge in San Jose, California, threw out a class action lawsuit from iPhone 4 owners who claimed that Apple misrepresented the strength of the phone’s glass, reports “GigaOm” (http://macte.ch/tbmUS).

The lawsuit was filed by Betsalel Williamson of California who had to replace the screen of his brand new iPhone after he knocked it off the arm of a chair, resulting “in spider cracks across the back glass panel.” In his ruling US District Judge Edward Davila said “it is a well known fact of life that glass can break under impact.” He added that the iPhone owners failed to show that Apple breached a warranty or violated California’s consumer protection laws.
