WiFi Suit: Arthur Firstenberg Sues Neighbor For
Using Electronics 

Thu Jan 14, 5:58 pm ET 
A Santa Fe man who alleges he suffers from
"electromagnetic allergies" is suing his neighbor
because she refuses to turn off her gadgets, he

According to the Santa
s-iphone-use/>  Fe Reporter, Arthur Firstenberg,
the plaintiff, has been sleeping at friends' homes
or in his car to avoid the electromagnetic waves
created by his neighbor Raphaela Monribot's cell
phone, wireless network, computer, compact
fluorescent lightbulbs and dimmer switches. 

Firstenberg claims he suffers from Electromagnetic
Sensitivity, or EMS, which induces "nausea,
vertigo, diarrhea, ringing in the ears, severe
headaches and body aches, crippling joint pains,
insomnia, impaired vision, impaired muscular
control," as well as other potentially
life-threatening ailments.

According to Firstenberg, he first started
experiencing symptoms when he was in college in
the 1980s and has been a vocal opponent of
wireless systems being established in public
buildings, though he has met with little success.

When Firstenberg first hired Monribot to cook
meals for him in his home, Monribot had initially
made concessions by turning off her phone and
computer. However, when she moved in next door,
she refused to keep her phone, computer and
wireless network turned off when not in use. When
asked if she could use a landline instead of her
iPhone, Firstenberg says Monribot "flatly refused
without explanation." 

The battle against Wi-Fi isn't one Firstenberg is
fighting alone. 
He's part of a group of Santa Fe residents who are
legal means to remove all Wi-Fi hotspots from
public locations because they claim the wireless
internet waves aggravate their "electromagnetic
allergies." To add merit to their case, they are
classifying their "allergy" or "sensitivity" as a
disability and are claiming the Americans with
Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination
based on disability.
