Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, thank you for your question today. Have long ago did you purchase your phone from Amazon? Was it directly from them or from a third party vendor? Have you reached out to them for assistance?
Hello, different expert here... It looks like your original expert was called away so I will assist..
If you filed in Louisville, Apple would fight it by claiming that KY didn't have personal jurisdiction over the case to force them to come to court and defend. Then you would have to argue that they have "sufficient contacts" with KY through doing business and selling their products to anticipate that they could be sued here and they have voluntarily subjected themselves to KY jurisdiction.
But the problem here is that you didn't buy from Apple....you bought from Amazon and Apple can claim that since it wasn't directly from an Apple store, they can't be held responsible for anyting that might have happened to it or what might have been done to it by the seller.
However, simply by filing the suit, you might "encourage" them to settle with you rather than having their attorneys spend thousands of dollars in legal fees to defend..
So just filing the suit might get you some results..
