Lawsuit Alleges Apple Conspired With Mafia

iPod Nano

Gregory McKenna has filed a suit against Apple, he alleges that Apple is conspiring with the mafia in an effort to coerce him to return to a New York based modeling agency he quit in 2000. As he explained in the 124 page complaint, an iPod Shuffle he brought in 2005 on eBay and an iPod Mini he got from an Apple store in 2006, possibly a Nano as iPod Mini’s were discontinued a year before. Both contain receivers that have allowed the mafia to send audio death threats that play with his music.
The suit seeks $14.3 million and lists ten defendants in all, including a local mechanic, a private investigator, the St. Louis Police Department, the FBI and the US Department of Justice.
