A Russian man is seeking more than $15,000 in damages from Apple after claiming that the U.S. tech giant drove him to homosexuality, the Govorit Moskva radio station has reported.
The plaintiff, identified as D. Razumilov, alleges that he became “mired in same-sex relationships” this summer after receiving 69 GayCoins on a cryptocurrency payment app he downloaded onto his iPhone in 2017. The unknown sender was said to have included an English-language message that Razumilov interpreted as “don’t judge without trying.”

A Dublin woman returning home on an Air Canada flight from Bogota says she was “completely humiliated” and “disgusted” after the cabin crew refused to let her use the washroom, forcing her to sit in her own urine for the duration of the seven-hour flight, Dublin Live reports.
The 26-year-old woman claims she repeatedly told the crew the severity of her situation.
“I asked four times over a two-hour period if I could use the toilet and told a cabin crew member that it was an emergency and I was going to have an accident if they didn’t let me use the toilet,” she told the news agency.

Canada Border Services Agency officers who seized Meng Wanzhou’s phones, laptop and tablet when she arrived at Vancouver’s airport in December 2018 later mistakenly gave the phone passcodes to the RCMP.
Lawyers for Canada’s attorney general admitted the error in B.C. Supreme Court on Tuesday as they tried to shoot down a theory that the CBSA and RCMP had conspired to violate the Huawei chief financial officer’s rights at the time of her arrest.
Meng’s lawyers claim the agencies acted at the behest of the RCMP to conduct a “covert criminal investigation” against their client.
But Crown lawyer Diba Majzub told B.C. Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes that one error doesn’t prove a larger conspiracy.
“When we consider this part of the process, and the fact that there was an error — that has to be looked at in the entire context,” said Majzub.
“The fact of an error in the process is not an air of reality that the process was a sham.”
