Pimp suing Nike for lack of warning on Jordans he used to beat deadbeat john


quote:

26-year-old Portland pimp has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Nike, claiming the shoe manufacturer is partially responsible for a brutal beating that helped net him a 100-year prison sentence.

Sirgiorgiro Clardy claims Nike should have placed a label in his Jordan shoes warning consumers that they could be used as a dangerous weapon. He was wearing a pair when he repeatedly stomped the face of a john who was trying to leave a Portland hotel without paying Clardy's prostitute in June 2012.

Jurors early in 2013 found him guilty of second-degree assault for using his Jordans -- a dangerous weapon -- to beat the john's face to a pulp. The man required stitches and plastic surgery on his nose.

The jury also found him guilty of robbing the john and beating the 18-year-old woman he forced to work as his prostitute. She was injured so badly that she bled from her ears.



quote:

In his three-page complaint handwritten from the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton, Clardy claims that Nike, Chairman Phil Knight and other executives failed to warn consumers that the shoes could be used as a weapon to cause serious injury or death.

"Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be up-held by potentially dangerous product ..." Clardy wrote. "Do (sic) to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused him personal injury in the likes of mental suffering."

Clardy wrote that he's tried to starve himself and kill himself multiple times.

I swear I thought this was an Onion article.

Not a very good pimp if he's wearing Jordan's. Everyone knows its easier to bust a bitch's head open with gator skin boots.

Why do we try and stop criminals like this from hurting themselves or committing suicide?

I don't quite understand that either. It's not a crime to try to kill yourself or to succeed. So what exactly is the purpose of stopping an adult of taking themselves out?

If it's not a crime and the person wants to do the deed themselves, why stop it?

My initial thought is surviving family members suing the prison for not doing more to prevent the guy from killing himself, or accusing them of purposefully starving the guy if he died of hunger. Obviously people will sue for anything on this planet.

Maybe the warden should give one of Clardy's fellow inmates a pair of Jordans so they can beat Clardy to death with them

Phil Knight probably got a solid laugh on his yacht when his attorney texted him this info
