Case is filed in United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico by Lymaris M. Rivera Diaz.

It’s second consecutive month that Apple has faced a lawsuit, previously in April regarding location tracking through a secret file. Apple lately explained the issue on launch of iOS 4.3.0. According to steve Jobs, people misinterpreted and so jumped to a wrong conclusion, the database in question is actually a crowd-sourced database of Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers!
