SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A judge has ruled that a Santa Fe man who claims that his neighbor's wireless service has caused him physical harm cannot "cannot reliably detect" the alleged electromagnetic stimuli that he says is hurting him.
The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Q2bjU8) that District Judge Sarah Singleton recently ruled anti-Wi-Fi advocate Arthur Firstenberg "cannot discern or discriminate the effects of anxiety caused by a testing situation or the presence of electromagnetic stimulus."
However, Singleton did rule that Firstenberg can still try to prove damages for injuries or pain and suffering.
Firstenberg filed suit in January 2010 seeking monetary damages from his neighbor Raphaela Monribot and her landlord Robin Leith. A victory for him could have a huge impact on the electronics business and consumers of Wi-Fi devices in Santa Fe.
