The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that a state judge ruled Tuesday that no scientific study has yet proved that electromagnetic stimulus adversely impacts personal health.
The ruling dealt an apparent lethal blow to a lawsuit filed by Santa Fe resident Arthur Firstenberg, who has long argued that electromagnetic radiation emitted by cellphones, smartphones, wireless routers and other apparatus can cause illness.
In January 2010, Firstenberg sued his neighbor, Raphaela Monribot, for $1 million over the use of such electronic equipment at Monribot's Santa Fe home.
Monribot's attorney, Joseph Romero, said the judge's ruling may set a precedent for similar Wi-Fi court cases.
