Apple, AT&T sued over "price discrimination"

It's amazing that lawsuits like this aren't immediately thrown out. It's not enough that Apple / AT&T have been sued over the battery (three times!); now they are being sued over the $200 price cut.

Dongmei Li, a resident of the borough of Queens, sued Apple earlier this week for "price discrimination" brought on by the $200 drop in the price of the iPhone announced earlier this month by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Li names Apple, Jobs and AT&T as defendants in her suit, filed on Monday.

According to documents filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, there are three central claims to Li's case. The first? "Apple's price reduction has hurt early purchasers' competition with Apple because they cannot sell it for as high a profit as they could have before the price cut."

What?  It's not as though people are able to flip the iPhone on eBay anyway, since there are so many.  The other claims are just as ... well, ludicrous.
