Let me make sure I have this straight. You stomp the bejesus out of a guy who ran afoul of the always pay your prostitute rule while you’re wearing your Nike made Jordan shoes. You’re found guilty of this and some other crimes and are given a 100 year prison sentence. This is Nike’s fault and they should pay you $100 million?
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 …” wrote Clardy, who is representing himself. “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 personal injury in the likes of mental suffering.”
Clardy wrote that he’s tried to starve himself and kill himself multiple times.
He asks a Multnomah County judge to order Nike to affix warning labels to all their “potentially dangerous Nike and Jordan merchandise.”
Yup, looks like I’ve got it.
