File this one under unsurprising, but it seems like a California law firm may be planning a class action lawsuit against Apple over the recent iPhone 4 reception issues. The firm, Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, LLP, is using their site to collect data on a potential suit, saying that they're looking for people who "recently purchased the new iPhone and have experienced poor reception quality, dropped calls and weak signals." The firm has filed class action suits in the past over the makers of games like Mafia Wars and Farmville over deceptive ads in the games, so they obviously have experience suing tech companies. Whether or not they'll have a case in this instance is another story.
Again, I'm not terribly surprised that someone is planning a class action suit against Apple. If they do follow through with a lawsuit, I'm not sure exactly how well it will go for them. As Apple has said, holding any phone in a certain way will cause signal degradation. Still, it would be good to see them hand out free bumper cases to anyone having reception issues. We'll just have to wait for the rumored iOS 4.01 update to come out to see if it alleviates some of the signal problems that people are having.
