83-year-old Evelyn Paswall was peacefully walking along in Manhasset, NY, in December 13, 2011, when she walked into the glass doors at the Apple Store Manhasset and broke her nose. For this, she wants $1 million in damages, from Apple, of course. Apple already puts warning strips on the glass in its stores, but that's not enough for Paswall's attorney, Derek Smith, who argues that Apple's "high-tech modern architecture" makes it liable. The case is 2:12-cv-01378-ADS-ARL (E.D.N.Y.). [MacRumors; NY Post via Apple Insider]
