OrangeMonkey11 (1553753) writes "The Santa Fe plaintiff claims to suffer from 'electromagnetic sensitivities' set off by cellphones, routers and other electronic devices
"In September 2008, Arthur Firstenberg bought the home on Barela Street, a few blocks from the newly redeveloped downtown rail yard here.

But last October, when a friend of his rented a house on the next block that backed up to Firstenberg's property, the familiar waves of nausea, vertigo, body aches, dizziness, heart arrhythmia and insomnia returned — all, he says, because she was using an iPhone, a laptop computer, a wireless router and dimmer switches.

Firstenberg, 59, wanted Raphaela Monribot to limit her use of the devices. "I asked her to work with me," he said. "Basically, she refused."

So he sued Monribot in state district court, seeking $530,000 in damages and an injunction to force her to turn off the electronics.""

In order to comply (1)

So to comply, is she allowed to continue speaking or must she regress all the way back to the pre-fire state of grunting in a dark cave?

Sante Fe, you say? Why am I not surprised (1)

Though it has been replaced as 'New Age Wingnut Mecca of the Southwest' by the newer and prettier Sedona, Santa Fe is still home to many New Age kooks with anti-social, control-freak attitudes and a sustainably grown 2x4 up their ass. Sante Fe was a hip artist's community back in the '60s, and the development of such places is as certain as the ecological succession of meadow to forest. Basically, pick any crappy but pretty place that artists can afford to live. If they move there, it will become cool. If it becomes cool, the hipsters will move there. Then the new age freaks move there, then the movie stars, then the other rich assholes, and finally the place becomes the climax community of poseurs, narcissists, and wealthy spiritual wannabees that we see in Santa Fe today.
