Apple Sued by 'Breaking Bad' Fan for Breach of Contract

As Breaking Bad enters the home stretch of its fifth and final season, the drama has never been so intense. And it's not just on-screen drama, either.

As GigOM reports, Ohio resident Noam Lazebnik has sued Apple for breach of contract, claiming that he and other Breaking Bad fans have been cheated by only receiving the first eight episodes of the show's final 16 episodes with their iTunes "Season Pass."

The AMC drama's fifth season has aired in a split format of two eight-episode mini-runs. Lazebnik says he and other customers were promised "every episode in that season," which should include the final eight episodes (since those are technically still part of Season Five). According to the lawsuit, Apple owes fans either $14.99 (for the standard version) or $22.99 (for the high-def version).

Lazebnik is basing the suit on "breach of contract and violation of California's consumer protection laws."

"When a consumer buys a ticket to a football game, he does not have to leave at halftime," reads the claim. "When a consumer buys an opera ticket, he does not get kicked out at intermission." Apple representatives contacted by GigaOM did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Meanwhile, only three episodes of Breaking Bad remain following the explosive "To'hajiilee," which aired last night. The show airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
