After more than five years in litigation, the New Mexico Court of Appeals ruled recently in Firstenberg v. Monribot. Mr. Firstenberg sued Monribot, his neighbor, for being affected by her use of electronics including cell phones, WiFi, etc. within the confines of her own home. He claimed that he is sensitive to electromagnetic radiation through a disorder called electromagnetic sensitivity (EMS). After a long, winding road through the district court, the Court of Appeals affirmed the district court's ruling that Firstenberg's experts were not reliable, and that Monribot should therefore be granted summary judgment. The case was dismissed.
