Just when you thought it was safe to live in your own home, a Santa Fe man who claims to suffer from electromagnetic allergies is suing his neighbor. Why? From the Santa Fe Reporter:
Arthur Firstenberg, the plaintiff, has been sleeping at friends’ homes or in his car to avoid the electromagnetic waves created by his neighbor Raphaela Monribot’s cell phone, wireless network, computer, compact fluorescent lightbulbs and dimmer switches.
Wait. There’s more. And it gets worse. Other residents claim that WiFi internet waves aggravate their electronic allergies, too, and they’re suing to remove all WiFi Hot Spots in the city.
To add merit to their case, they are classifying their “allergy” or “sensitivity” as a disability and are claiming the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination based on disability.
What if they’re allergic to radio and television waves?
