I think you need to consult a dictionary, you seem to be missing the meaning of a word.
verb [ reporting verb ]
claim or assert that someone has done something illegal or wrong, typically without proof that this is the case : [with clause ] he alleged that he had been assaulted | [ trans. ] the offenses are alleged to have been committed outside the woman's home | he is alleged to have assaulted five men.
(usu. be alleged) suppose or affirm to be the case : the first artifact ever alleged to be from Earhart's aircraft.
ORIGIN Middle English (in the sense [declare on oath] ): from Old French esligier, based on Latin lis, lit- lawsuit ; confused in sense with Latin allegare allege.
both children allege that the babysitter had left them alone for hours at a time: claim, assert, charge, accuse, declare, state, contend, argue, affirm, maintain, attest, testify, swear; formal aver.
Not to be confused with alligation.
"Alleged" redirects here. For the champion racehorse, see Alleged (horse).
An allegation (also called adduction) is a claim of a fact by a party in a pleading, which the party claims to be able to prove. Allegations remain assertions without proof, until they can be proved.
There are also marriage allegations: marriage bonds and allegations exist for couples who applied to marry by licence. They do not exist for couples who married by banns. The marriage allegation was the document in which the couple alleged (or frequently just the groom alleged on behalf of both of them) that there were no impediments to the marriage.
Generally in a civil complaint a plaintiff alleges facts sufficient to establish all the elements of the claim and thus states a cause of action. The plaintiff must then carry the burden of proof and the burden of persuasion in order to succeed in the lawsuit.
A defendant can allege affirmative defenses in its answer to the complaint.
Other allegations are required in a pleading to establish the correct jurisdiction, personal jurisdiction and subject matter jurisdiction.
Disjunctive allegations are allegations in a pleading joined together by an "or". In a complaint, disjunctive allegations are usually per se defective because such a pleading does not put the party on notice of which allegations they must defend.
On the other hand, defendants often plead in the alternative by listing seemingly inconsistent defenses. For example, "I did not do the crime", "if I did, I didn't know", or "even if I did know, I've got a good excuse". Such a pleading may be considered disjunctive and may be permissible.Alleged is not proven.

You do not have to like their phones, or the fact that a country of 5.3 million are standing up to the might Apple, but the fact remains Nokia feels they have a case and Apple will have to prove that they don't. Pretty simple. If we turn on our hypocrisy devices, if this suit have been going the other way with Apple suing Nokia or Ericsson or anyone else, you and several of the more rabid members of this site would be all for "sticking it to them", but now that Apple may be caught with its hand in the cookie jar Nokia is deemed petty, immature, unprofessional, etc...While I love all of my Apple products, and devices, I can truly see why many Apple users are hated outside of the community.
