You don't have a case, then.
I saw no disclaimer on the iTunes page.
You should have looked.
Nowhere that I have seen does it warn people that their information rusted to iCloud will be overwritten by anything from an iPhone
No one can believe that, because it's the most basic feature of iCloud itself. It's everywhere you read anything about iCloud, both as software or as a feature of hardware.
even and ESPECIALLY when one has taken steps to turn off "backups."
It explicitly tells you that when you turn backups and syncing off.
Now, if there is an attorney anywhere who would like to take this on, I am very interested.
Again, no one will take this on. If your personal story is true, it's upsetting, but your reliance on only one source of backup is a failing on your part, not Apple's. Something that important demands multiple physical local backups.
