Another day, another lawsuit. Florida resident Thomas S. Ross has filed a lawsuit against Apple this week, claiming the company infringe upon his 1992 invention of a hand-drawn “Electronic Reading Device” (ERD).

The court filing claims the plaintiff was “first to file a device so designed and aggregated” and that the device inspired the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. He’s seeking a jury trial and is seeking restitution of $10 billion and a royalty of up to 1.5% on Apple’s worldwide sales of “infringing” devices.  No word on why Ross waited so long to sue. After all, the iPad arrived in 2001, and the iPhone debuted in 2007.
