Man sues Apple over glass on iPhone 4

Apple has not responded to a California man's lawsuit that alleges the iPhone 4 has a manufacturing defect.

Donald Lebuhn says the defect causes the phone's housing to break after "reasonable use."

He claims when his daughter dropped it from a height of three feet, the phone's glass shattered even despite a protective bumper. Lebuhn is suing for monetary damages and injunctions to force Apple to give customers options for replacing damaged glass.

Apple ads call its glass "ultra-durable."
