Teared... meaning it tore?
I doubt "warranty" would cover it. applecare+ which covers ACCIDENTS probably would.

Bigger problems will arise from the damage to the 30 pin connector. I ordered one for my iP4 from ifixit.com, took a deep breath, and replaced the part myself. It was not a simple procedure. I would recommend having someone experienced replace both parts at the same time.

Not sure why a warranty would coverage accidental damage like that.
