Apple said this wall charger and other goods were fakes despite being advertised as an "original Apple" items
Apple has complained of a "flood" of counterfeit goods masquerading as its products being sold on Amazon.com.
The claim relates to items sold via Amazon's "fulfilment" scheme, whereby third parties list their goods on the retail giant's site, store their inventory in its warehouses and rely on it for deliveries.
But it is suing one of the vendors rather than Amazon itself.
The defendant, New York-based Mobile Star LLC, could not be reached for comment and has yet to file its own legal paperwork.
Amazon says it takes such matters seriously.
