Neighbor's electronics may cause illness

A New Mexico man's lawsuit against his neighbor claims her refusal to switch off her cell phone makes him ill due to electromagnetic sensitivity.
Arthur Firstenberg filed a lawsuit Monday in Santa Fe District Court alleging neighbor Raphaela Monribot, whose house is only 25 feet from Firstenberg's, refused his requests to turn off her cell phone, wireless computer network and other electronic devices he said aggravate his electromagnetic sensitivity, or EMS.
The plaintiff "cannot stay in a hotel, because hotels and motels all employ Wi-Fi connections, which trigger a severe illness," lawyer Lindsay Lovejoy said in a request for a preliminary injunction. "If (Firstenberg) cannot obtain preliminary relief, he will be forced to continue to sleep in his car, enduring winter cold and discomfort, until this case can be heard."
