Inmate Who Stomped the Crap Out of Some Guy Sues Nike for Not Warning Him That Kicking People in the Face with Nikes Can Be Dangerous
A 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.
As we all know, in this wonderful land of ours, anyone can file a lawsuit — even violent convicted criminals whose claims are nonsense. And what’s stopping him? He’s a loser with nothing but time on his hands. It provides amusement to hassle an innocent defendant, and there is unlikely to be any real price paid.
Thank God for Democrats and their staunch opposition to loser pays, huh?
Oh well. At least this guy is locked up forever, where he belongs.
Thanks to Dana.
