Apple is faced with its second lawsuit in just under a month. Once again, it concerns their keyboards.

The lawsuit filed against Apple is over its use of the ‘butterfly switch’ keyboards, introduced in 2015, used in their MacBook and MacBook Pro models. Apparently, the keyboards are defective.

The suit, filed on Tuesday in the U.S District Court for Northern California, states that the butterfly switches are delicate and “cannot be removed without risk of damage to the keyboard.” Damaging the keyboard in this manner could void Apple’s warranty. It is also stated that, when dust or other particles settle under the keys, the butterfly switches are rendered nonfunctional.

Apple suggests holding the laptops at a 75-degree angle and using compressed air to clean the keys. However, the defendants claim that this is not a reasonable solution at all.

Apple has not made any official comments concerning the lawsuit.
