Siri, Apple's voice-activated personal assistant on the iPhone 4S is the target of a new lawsuit.

A Southern California man claims Apple exaggerates Siri's abilities in ads. He says Siri often does not understand what he asked and often gives the wrong answer.

The suit filed in a U.S. district court in Los Angeles seeks financial relief and damages for other iPhone 4S owners as well. There's a similar suit in New York.

Apple has not yet commented on these legal challenges.
